We are pleased to offer no-cost Notary Public services for the benefit of the community.

Notaries are commissioned or licensed by the KY Secretary of State and serve as an impartial witness when important documents are signed.

It is recommended that you set up an appointment with us to ensure that a Notary Public is available when they plan to visit.

Please carefully read the following guidelines and exceptions before arriving:

  • Notary service is on a first-come, first-served basis, at the availability and discretion of staff. Library staff reserves the right to refuse notary services at their sole discretion.
  • All persons signing any document should bring a current and valid government-issued photo ID that contains a signature, such as a Driver’s License, valid passport, or a US military ID card.
  • Documents should be completely filled out in advance, EXCEPT for the signature which will be completed in front of the Notary. A Notary CANNOT notarize documents that have already been signed.
  • If witnesses are required for a given document, it is the responsibility of the signer to supply them. The witness will be required to bring a valid government-issued photo ID as listed above. We will not provide witnesses.
  • Documents must be written in English, and service will only be provided in English.
    A Notary and the person seeking notarization must be able to communicate directly with each other.
  • Notaries cannot certify the authenticity of a document, certify copies, or provide legal advice or counseling regarding documents.
