Those who are in search of notary services must bring their unsigned documents, valid photo identification, and any witnesses required. All people signing the document(s) must be present. Library staff cannot serve as witnesses. Photo IDs must be current and in English. Notary Public services are free of charge.

Notaries screen the signers of documents for:

    • True identity
    •  Willingness to sign without duress or intimidation
    •  Awareness of the contents of the document or transaction


What we cannot notarize:

    • Mortgages or real estate transactions
    • Employment verification (IRS form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification)


Notaries will not provide service if the requestor’s document or circumstances of the request for Notary Services raise any issues of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty for the library. In this event, the library Notary may at their sole discretion, decline to provide Notary Service.
