How Do I Renew My Passport?

The library does not renew passports. However, adult passport renewals are easy to do. To renew a 10-year adult passport, visit the State Department website and download form DS-82 along with the instructions. You can renew by mail if all of the following are true of your most recent U.S. passport:

  1. It is undamaged and can be submitted with your application
  2. It was issued when you were age 16 or older
  3. It was issued within the last 15 years (not expired more than 5 years)
  4. It was issued in your current name or you can legally document your name change with a certified copy of your marriage certificate or government-issued document evidencing your legal name change

Complete the application and mail it with payment and the old passport to the address on the form. If you were under 16 when your passport was issued (a 5-year passport), you cannot renew it. You must apply for a new passport.

Seed Library

Connetquot Public Library is delighted to introduce our Seed Library service—a unique initiative designed to foster community engagement, promote sustainable practices, and empower individuals to cultivate their own green spaces. Our Seed Library is a free resource available to all library members, providing access to a diverse collection of vegetable and herb seeds.

What is a Seed Library?

Our Seed Library is a collection of vegetable and herb seeds that you can “borrow” for planting at home. All of the seeds are organic and are purchased or donated through Seed Savers.

How Do I Borrow Seeds?

Just submit a request form and your seed packets will be available for pickup at the front desk. It's that simple! (1 request per household per season for up to 3 seed packets).

Do I Have to Return Seeds?

No, but we encourage you to share seeds from plants you have grown with your family, friends and neighbors. Also, we would love to see photos of your garden or hear stories about your success!

Notice: Thank you for your overwhelming support! All seed packets are out of stock for the 2024 season. We appreciate your participation and are already making plans to expand our offerings for the 2025 season.
