The Library offers notary public service for a fee of $5.00 per session. Please call ahead to determine the availability of the Notary at 540-375-3089.

The purpose of a Notary Public is to act as an impartial witness as he or she certifies signatures. All signers of a document must be present and provide current photo identification. Documents must be signed in the presence of the Notary.

A Notary cannot give advice or instruction regarding documents to be notarized and will not be involved in any transaction that the Notary believes to be false, deceptive or fraudulent. 

A notarization may not be performed if the Notary and the principal signer cannot communicate in the same language.  Translators or intermediaries may not be used as the notary must communicate directly with the signer.

*Individuals are responsible for providing their own witnesses for all transactions; witnesses must also supply current photo identification.
