Passport Services at HCPL To Be Suspended

yellow exclamationAs of January 1, 2019, the Harris County District Clerk's Office will no longer provide Passport Services at Harris County Public Library locations.

The affected branches are Barbara Bush Branch Library, Clear Lake City - County Freeman Branch Library, Katherine Tyra Branch Library at Bear Creek, Octavia Fields Branch Library & Lone Star College - Tomball Community Library.

HCPL hopes to renew our partnership with the District Clerk's Office in the future to resume this popular service. In the meantime, please visit Travel.State.Gov for any questions you may have about the application process.


That's sad Passport Services

That's sad Passport Services will no longer be available at HCPL locations. I renewed on a few years ago at the Bush Library and it was efficient and helpful. Evidently it was too reasonable, because it's being shut down. It certainly beat going downtown or to a local USPS office. May have saved money - another reason for the government to shut it down. Going downtown or the USPS office is more like the County Clerk office. Their open from 8 to 5 and people show up with books and chairs because they know its gonna so long...

We have heard from many
