The city of Santa Clarita’s new Passport Acceptance Facility, located on the second floor of the Old Town Newhall Library, is open for business, offering passport services to library customers by appointment.
“The Santa Clarita Public Library has what you need for where you’re going – and now that includes passport services,” said Mayor Laurene Weste during a visit with fellow City Council members on Wednesday.
According to the U.S. Department of State, nearly 20 million passport books and cards will be issued this year in the United States alone.
“Unfortunately, high demands can translate to long wait times,” Weste said. “That is why we are excited to be able to offer this convenient service at your local library.”
The new facility offers the following services:
* First-time passports;
* Passport renewals, for passports issued before the applicant was 16 years of age;
* Renewals for expired passports issued more than 15 years ago;
* Replacements for lost, stolen or damaged passports;
* Passport photos.
For facility dates and hours, fee information or to schedule an appointment, visit the Passport Services website at SantaClaritaLibrary.com/Passport-Services.com.
The Old Town Newhall Library is located at 24500 Main Street, Newhall 91321.
