Notary Services

Granville County Public Library System provides free notary services for the community. The Notary Public is a staff member licensed and appointed by the state government to witness the signing of important documents and administer oaths.

What is required for a document to be notarized?

  • The document language that commits the signer in some way.
  • A signature that is performed in the presence of the Notary Public.
  • A notarial certificate that the Notary completes to evidence the notarization.
  • A valid issued government identification card or driver license.

Please contact the library in advance to verify that your document (s) can be notarized.
