Notary Service

The library offers Notary service free of charge.

Please bring valid photo ID, and remember that documents to be notarized must be signed in front of the Notary (do not sign them beforehand). All people signing the document(s) must be present. 

What we cannot notarize:

  • Cook County real estate transactions
  • Employment verification (IRS form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification)
  • Photocopies of official documents
  • Library staff cannot witness documents; you must bring your own witnesses.
