The United States Department of State selected the Milanof-Schock Library to be among the first Pennsylvania public libraries to become a Passport Acceptance Agency.

As a Passport Acceptance Agency, the Library is officially authorized to:

  • Provide passport applications and related forms;
  • Explain service options;
  • Review applications for completeness;
  • Record and verify applicant identification;
  • Collect citizenship evidence and processing fees;
  • Administer oaths and witness signatures; and
  • Forward applications, citizenship evidence, and fees to the Federal Government on a daily basis.
