Notary Service

Notary service is available at the library, by appointment only.

Please review the following information:

  • Notary service is limited to five documents per person, per visit.
  • We do not provide notary service 30 minutes before closing.
  • We notarize most forms, but our notary service is not available for certified copies (e.g. birth and marriage certificates), I-9 Forms, real estate and loan documents, and certain other documents.
  • The Library will not provide witnesses, and witnesses may not be solicited from patrons using the Library.

  • We cannot give legal advice regarding your documents or which type of notarization you require, although we will explain the difference between giving an acknowledgement and taking an oath or affirmation (jurat).

  • The Library reserves the right to decline service for any reason.
