Notary Public

The Crystal Lake Public Library provides the services of a Notary Public on a walk-in basis at no charge.

What to Bring

  • Your completed, unsigned document(s) to be notarized
  • A valid, unexpired state ID, federal ID, or other government ID with signature and photo
  • If witnesses are required in addition to a Notary, please provide your own witnesses. The Library is unable to supply witnesses for you

We cannot notarize

  • Documents already signed (signatures must be witnessed by the Notary Public)
  • Documents that are not in English
  • Documents with blank spaces other than the space for signature
  • USCIS Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification
  • Real estate documents pertaining to Cook County
  • Due to Illinois notarial law, we are unable to certify copies

Other Notary Options

  • Mobile Notary: We are unable to go outside the Library in order to notarize a document. If you are in need of a mobile service, please consult Illinois Notary Search (1-2-3 Notary) or Notary Rotary
  • App: Notarize is the first on-demand remote, electronic notary service valid in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Notarize allows for remote notarization via video call. The app is free; however, each notarial act costs $25
