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.

Test Proctoring

Due to COVID-19, test proctoring services are unavailable until further notice.

Available when the library is open. Requires prior arrangements with a proctor.

Tests can be proctored at no charge to Lake Villa District residents. Students who need to have a test proctored must coordinate with their institution and the library. Librarians will work with students to schedule a time that works for both people.

We ask that you read our Test Proctoring policy to understand your responsibilities.
