Notary

We are unable to offer notary service at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Samuels Public Library is pleased to offer free, limited Notary Public services. Please call the Library at 540.635.3153 prior to your visit to ensure a Notary is available.

Notary service is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, and the service is not guaranteed. This service is a courtesy provided by the library, and not the Notary's primary duty - you may be asked to wait while the Notary attends to a patron at the desk, takes a telephone call or tends to other library matters.

Bring your photo ID. Do not sign anything before coming for the notarization. If you must bring a witness, that person must also be in possession of valid photo identification. The library will not provide witnesses, and witnesses may not be solicited from patrons using the library. In order to serve as a witness, the witness must personally know the individual whose document is being notarized.

Notary Publics Cannot:

  • Notarize copies of any kind
  • Notarize deeds, mortgages, wills, living wills, living trusts, codicils or depositions
  • Prepare legal documents
  • Provide legal advice or any counseling regarding your documents
  • Post or pre-date a document
  • Notarize documents in a language other than English
  • Provide a witness
Form I-9 does not require notarization. Samuels Library does not serve as an employer’s Authorized Representative for any business or organization, and is unable to assist with completion of this document.
