*Notary service is provided free of charge, please bring a valid ID and do not sign paperwork to be notarized until you are in the presence of Notary.  You may call  ahead to ensure Notary will be available.

If witnesses are required, the individual must bring them; the library will not supply any witnesses. Documents will only be notarized if they are written in English. Notary Service is NOT available for Deeds, Wills, Living Wills, Living Trusts, Codicils, Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Powers of Attorney, an Affidavit or any other similar document, copies of Driver’s Licenses or copies of Passports.

In accordance with NJ Notarial Law, Notaries will not provide service if the customer, document or circumstances of the request for Notary Service raise any issue of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt or uncertainty for the library. In these circumstances, the library Notary may, at his/her sole discretion, decline to provide Notary Service.

Please note classes and programs may be virtual or cancelled due to the current pandemic.

Please call for availability.
