The Library has several staff available for Notary Services at all Branches.
Please call to confirm availability of notary.
This service is offered free of charge.
The notaries are authorized to administer oaths and acknowledgments of documents.
From the notary handbook: “An acknowledgement is a verification that the person whose signature appears on the document is the person who appears before you and whose identify you took reasonable steps to verify.” In other words, we are pretty much just verifying that the person is who they say they are and then witnessing them sign a document. No legal advice or preparation and no notarizing of anything other than a signature on a legal document.
When requesting the service that they need to bring an official photo ID with their signature on it.
Please bring a current correct ID with your for identity verification.
The ID should include the following:
- A photo of the bearer
- Accurate physical description of the bearer
- Signature of the bearer
For example: a driver’s license, official state-issued ID card, military ID, passport, etc. And it MUST BE current.
No expired identification will be accepted.
