Frequently Asked Questions

Is your notary service really free?

Yes! Public notary is just one of the many services Stark Library offers for free to the community.

What times are notaries available?

Notary service is available most hours we are open, but we ask you to call ahead to 330.452.0665 for service. Appointments cannot be scheduled.

What do I need to have a document notarized?

In order to have a document notarized, please attend your session with the following:

  • All the people who will sign the document (involved parties)
  • A valid, government issued photo ID for each person
  • The document without any signatures

Your notary will verify your identities, witness the signing of the document, and notarize it when complete.

Does having a document notarized make it legal?

While many legal documents must be notarized, having something notarized does not make something legal. Our notaries are there to verify the identities of those involved and witness they are signing the document willingly. A notary public is not an attorney and cannot make something legal or ensure its truthfulness. If you need legal advice, please consult a certified attorney.

Where can I find legal forms?

If you want to create your own legal documents, Stark Library may be able to help with that. We offer FREE access to Legal Forms, a third-party service to access thousands of law forms and create legal documents.

I need to print off the documents to be notarized.
