Did you know your public library could gain revenue by accepting U.S. passport applications? Brenda Sprague, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Passport Services with the U.S. Department of State will speak about the benefits that come from being designated as an official location where U.S. citizens may apply for their passports. The Department of State currently works with libraries across the country who are authorized to perform this service in their communities. Brenda will share success stories, review the requirements for becoming authorized, and provide details about the fees kept by the libraries for each application that is accepted. Given that Department issued over 14 million passports in 2015, this could be very good news for libraries looking to supplement their budgets.
