Library Now Offers Passport Service!

We are thrilled to announce that our own Signal Mountain Library now serves as an official U.S. Passport Application Processing Center, just in time as you’re booking your 2024 travel plans.  Please see details below from the library:
If you or anyone in your family needs to apply for a U.S. passport, we will be happy to help. (Renewals are handled by the passport holder, but we can provide you with the necessary form.) In order to make things run as smoothly as possible, please bear in mind the following:
1. Because of the time involved, passport service is by appointment only. We do not accept walk-ins. To make an appointment, please call us at 423-886-7323 or email
2. There are two fees that must be paid at the time of your appointment. The execution fee for passport service is $35, payable by cash or check to the Signal Mountain Library. The application fee, paid by check to the U.S. State Department, will vary depending on the type of passport and speed of service requested.
3. You must also provide your own passport-compliant photograph. The CVS on Ridgeway Avenue is one convenient option for this essential step.
Beyond these points, remember, too, that the rules and regulations governing passport applications are complex. Please be patient with us and the process as a whole.
