Passport acceptance offered at Sikeston Public Library
The Sikeston Public Library is pleased to announce that it will be accepting passport applications on behalf of the U.S. Department of State, beginning on Monday, April 24. U.S. citizens planning international travel may apply for their passports without leaving Sikeston.
We have had many inquiries over the years asking whether we process passports. Other libraries in our area have had success with offering this service, and we are excited to bring passport processing to the Sikeston area.
The library will not be taking passport photographs, so applicants will need to bring passport photographs with them. Many area businesses provide passport photographs that meet U.S. Department of State guidelines.
Current passport holders will still have to renew their passports online or through the mail, as we are not authorized to process passport renewals. The library has the appropriate renewal forms available, or the form can be downloaded from the State Department’s website.”
Passport processing hours will be from 10 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday; from 1-5 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday; and from 1-8 p.m. on Tuesday. Other hours, including weekend hours, will be available by appointment.
For application forms, information on documentation required, fees, and a wealth of other passport and international travel information, visit the State Department's website at travel.state.gov.
