If you are applying to a passport in person at a Passport Facility or Location, please consider that some of them have limited service hours and may require an appointment, so it is advisable to contact the U.S. Passport Office prior to your visit.
Also, bear in mind that a Passport Acceptance Agent will need to verify personally your application, so contacting your office in advance will help make sure an agent will be available for you outside walk-in hours by scheduling an appointment.

Any government office can apply to become a Passport Acceptance Facility.
The most common sites for Passport Services are US Post Offices. Post offices accepting passport applications have the advantage of sometimes offering other products and services for both first-time and renewal passport applications, e.g. taking your passport photo and walk-in service hours.
Public libraries are another example of very convenient locations offering passport acceptance services. Either submitting your application in walk-in service hours or with a previous appointment, libraries offer additional advantages, such as extended hours and a passport photo service at bargain prices. Most importantly, public libraries offer the convenience of applying for your passport anytime the library is open, even on evenings and on weekend hours.
Other locations such as public university campus, clerk of court offices, and other government offices are also acceptance facilities for Passport Services. These offices allow you the issuing for new passports, passport renewals and passport amendments, and in some cases other supplementary services related to your passport application.
