The Bensenville Community Public Library is now a United States Passport Acceptance Facility!
Make an Appointment!
- We accept passport applications by appointment only. Please call (630) 766-4642 to schedule an appointment, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If the appropriate passport agent is not available to take your call, we will return your call as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.
- The application process can take up to an hour or more per application. Please prepare accordingly, as you will be required to stay in the library while we review your application. You must provide us with a way to contact you at any point during the application process.
- Having all forms completed prior to coming to your appointment will decrease your wait time at the library. Making an appointment does not guarantee your appointment time if the necessary forms are not completed when you arrive for your appointment.
