Libraries have long since evolved into more than a house of books. We offer a variety of services, programs, and resources to the community. One of our newest and most valuable services includes getting your passport at the library. Yes, that’s right, you can get a passport at your local Harris County Public Library.  

Passport services are available at select HCPL Locations. For more information, visit our Passport Services page. 

What's the best thing to do when you get a passport?  Travel of course. While you’re at the library getting a passport, head over to our travel section and browse our collection.
