See the World!Yes, we are a passport application acceptance facility! We can submit your application for a new adult passport, a child's passport, or the renewal of a passport issued more than 15 years ago.
Note: To renew an expired passport that is less than 15 years old, you don't need to come in. You may file for the renewal through the mail.
When applying for a passport with us, you need to bring all the documents listed here with you -- and don't forget your checkbook for the application fees. We don't accept plastic.
This service is by appointment only. Please call ahead at 382-6011.

Even better, it's only a $5 donation to the Friends of the Library! Limber up and support the library at the same time, Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:15AM. Namaste!
Scope out the stars with us!
Come join us with representatives from the NH Astronomical Society for a Sky Watch on the library grounds. Telescopes will be set up to let you see the moon, planets, distant galaxies, and more! Come in to the Nelson Room at 6:30PM to learn about the library's telescope and what to look for in the skies over Plaistow. When it gets dark, we'll move outside and start star-gazing.
