The County of San Luis Obispo Library is now accepting US Passport applications at its three regional libraries in Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, and San Luis Obispo.


Residents of San Luis Obispo County are now able to apply for a United States Passport at three County Libraries. The Arroyo Grande Regional Library, Atascadero Regional Library, and San Luis Obispo Regional Library are official Passport Acceptance Facilities for the US Department of State. These libraries offer passport services for new applicants and for those persons with passports expired more than five years.

The Library is offering this service to County residents to help meet the high demand for passport applications and to offer appointments at convenient times. All three libraries will have appointment times on Saturday to meet demand on the weekend.

Please call the individual library to schedule an appointment. Appointments will likely last about thirty minutes, so please plan accordingly. For a list of application requirements please visit the Library’s website.
