Travelers can obtain passports at Central Library in Sacramento

Feb 27, 2013 (The Sacramento Bee - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Sacramento-area residents preparing for international travel can apply for passports through the Sacramento Public Library.

The library can process U.S. passport applications at the Central Library, 828 I St., Sacramento.

"Our Central Library is a natural fit for passport services, as its open hours are typically more convenient than post offices," said Rivkah K. Sass, library director, in a written statement. "Plus, the passport processing fee is a unique funding source that benefits our 28 Sacramento Public Library locations." Passport photos can be taken at the library office for an additional $15 fee. Only checks or money orders are accepted.

The Central Library passport office is open from 3 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays; noon to 4:30 p.m. Fridays; 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays; and noon to 4:30 p.m. Sundays. Appointments are encouraged and may be made by calling the library at (916) 264-2920. Free metered parking is available Sundays and after 6 p.m. Tuesdays.

Sass noted that people preparing for overseas vacations can borrow books and DVDs about travel from the library. They also can use the library's Internet computers to book flights and hotels online, and to print airport boarding passes. In addition, librarians are available to provide information on topics from travel destinations to how to order a birth certificate.
