Notary

Available when the library is open and a Notary Public is working.

Notarizing documents is free. Not all staff members are authorized to notarize documents, so we recommend calling ahead to ensure that a Notary will be present. Please keep in mind that Notaries cannot give legal advice. Questions about documents should be referred to qualified legal counsel or to the parties requesting the notarization of the signature. 

Bring a photo identification with your signature on it, and do not sign any documents beforehand. Please bring your own witnesses if they are required.

Wills, Cook County real estate documents, and I-9’s cannot be notarized.
