The last time I visited your library, it was to obtain a
passport, I think, on June 16, 2020. My vision is failing so I can't be sure of the date. I have had a Library card for many decades, issued in Orange County. Unfortunately, I am unable to locate it. May I apply for a replacement card so that my Caregiver can take me to visit some of the nearby State Parks?
My name is Joy Lee Cogan. Thank you for your help.
