Do you have a document that needs to be notarized? The Library has several staff members licensed as Notary Publics. They are available during many of the hours the Library is open.
You may wish to call the Library at 847-663-1234 to confirm that a Notary is available before you come. Please remember to bring a photo ID and do not sign the document before you come. Unfortunately, we are not able to notarize any real estate documents pertaining to Cook County. If you will need witnesses when you get your document notarized, please bring them with you. Please call to schedule an appointment for documents requiring more than 25 notary stamps.
