Free notary services are available for individuals at the Main Library from 9-5 Monday-Thursday, and on Friday from 9-4. Evenings and Saturdays may be accommodated by appointment.
Notaries adhere to the Ohio Revised Code: Section 147. Ohio law requires that the person signing the document to be notarized must appear in person and present identification. The document must be presented in its entirety. The document to be notarized must be filled out in its entirety and must have no blank spaces.
Due to limited resources, notary services are for individuals only. No business documents are accepted for notary service, nor will notary services be performed for any business organization.
