Computers & Wi-Fi


Free inside the building. Look for the network named “LVDLPublic” on your device. (You’ll probably be able to connect from the parking lot, too, but it’s much cozier inside).


Windows 7 desktops are available for use in our lab. Equipped with Microsoft Office 2016 and Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome. 

Two Apple iMacs are available for use. Equipped with iMovie, iPhoto, and Garage Band.


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.

Test Proctoring

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.

Voter Registration

Available when the library is open.

No appointment is needed, but we encourage you to call ahead to ensure a registrar is present.

Bring two forms of identification, and make sure one form lists your current address. (A driver's license and a library card would work just fine)
