Notary Services

The library offers Notary Public services free of charge at all of our locations. This service does not require an appointment, but Notary Publics may not be available at all times the library is open. To ensure a Notary will be available at the location you want to visit, you must complete the Book a Librarian form to schedule an appointment at least 72 hours in advance. You can also call any location for additional information or to schedule an appointment. A La Porte County Public Library card is not required to use this service.

Guidelines for Notary Service

  • Documents to be notarized must be signed in front of the Notary. Do not sign them beforehand.
  • Documents to be notarized must be complete. Bring the entire document, not just the page(s) that needs to be signed.
  • All people signing the document(s) must be physically present to have their signature notarized.
  • Valid photo identification is required for each person signing the document. The following types of photo IDs are accepted: state-issued driver’s license or ID card, passport or military ID. It needs to be current or not expired within the previous 3 years. Your name on the ID must match the name on the document being notarized.
  • If your document requires witnesses, it will expedite the process if the witnesses accompany you to the notarization. This is especially important if you will be going to a branch location for the service.
  • Notaries reserve the right to decline service if any of the above guidelines are not met, if there are concerns about the authenticity of the documents, or if the individual(s) signing the documents appear to be unaware of what they are signing or under duress.
