Our Notary Service
Designated staff members at the Downtown Library and Hayner Library at Alton Square Mall are available as notaries.
The Hayner Public Library District provides the services of a notary public on a walk-in basis at a charge of $1.00 for each notary stamp. Please note that some documents require more than one notary stamp. We recommend you call the library before visiting to ensure that a notary is on duty.
Other things to know:
- Illinois law regulates notaries. We will not notarize documents that do not follow such laws and regulations. Notaries will not prepare or complete documents for you, nor can they give legal advice on a matter.
- Per Illinois law, notaries will not provide service if the document or circumstances of the request for notary service raise any question of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty for the library. In this event, the notary may decline to provide notary service at their sole discretion.
