Notary Public Services

The Somerville Public Library provides free Notary Public service for patrons at our Central Library, located at 79 Highland Avenue. Please call the Central Library’s Reference Desk at (617) 623-5000, x2955 to confirm notary services are available that day.

Please bring a valid, government-issued photo ID (drivers license, state-issued ID or Passport) along with your unsigned document(s). If a document requires witnesses, please bring witnesses with you.

Please note that the Notary Public is not a lawyer and is not qualified to answer any legal questions or provide legal counsel. In accordance with M.G.L. Chapter 222, the notary may refuse service if they feel that the circumstances raise any issues of authenticity, identity, or other doubt regarding the signatory’s understanding or participation in the transaction.

If our Notary Public is not available, banks, office supply stores, and shipping/mailing centers may also provide notary services for a fee.
