Notary Service

Many library staff members are notaries. Often, there is a library staff member available at each branch to provide notary services. Please call the library you plan to visit for the service to be sure a notary is available.

Valid photo ID MUST be presented at the time of notarization. According to the Secretary of State's website, " A notary public may have satisfactory evidence of the signer’s identity by viewing a passport, driver’s license or other government issued photo identification card."

All parties signing the document, whose signatures require acknowledgement before the notary, must appear in-person. 

Documents must be completed before notarization, with the exception of the signatures. Signing the document should take place in the notary's presence.

Please bring witnesses, if required.
