Under NYS Notary Public License Law sec 136, the Library will charge $2 per notarization. A notarization is considered one signature and one stamp.

The library notary may not draw up any kind of legal papers and they cannot notarize wills, trusts, living wills, codicils, or any similar documents establishing the terms for the disposition of someone’s property to take effect after death. The library strongly advises that those documents be notarized under the guidance of an attorney. The Library notary will not notarize marriage certificates or related documents. The Library notary will not notarize depositions, or USCIS Form 1-9: Employment Eligibility Verification. The Library notary is not an attorney, or licensed to practice law, and does not provide legal advice.

Any member of the community who is utilizing the service of the notary must appear in person, and present a valid, non-expired New York State Driver’s License or other non-expired government-issued photo ID. The documents must be signed in the presence of the notary, but all information above the signatory line must be completed by the patron.

Patrons must bring their own witnesses, if witnesses are needed, but they may not solicit witnesses from the staff or patrons using the library. To serve as a witness, the witness must personally know the person whose document is being notarized and must have a valid, non-expired New York State Driver’s license or other valid, non-expired government-issued photo ID. The library notary cannot notarize for patrons who are out of state or who are not in the library in person.

All documents that are notarized must be in English.

The Quogue Library reserves the right to refuse notary services at its discretion.
