Notary Service

The Newton Public Library offers free notary services, by appointment. Appointments are available during regular library hours, Monday through Friday, as staff time allows. If you need to have a signature witnessed by a notary public, please call the library at 641-792-4108 to make your appointment. Please bring your document and a government issued form of photo identification to your appointment. 

Examples of acceptable forms of identification include a valid drivers license, passport, or state ID. If your document requires an additional witness signature, you must provide your own witnesses. Library staff may not serve as witnesses.

Notary services are available to private citizens for personal documents only. Library notaries will not notarize documents for businesses or commercial entities. Notaries reserve the right to refuse to notarize any document, if they do not feel that all necessary criteria have been met, or if an appointment has not been made in advance. There is no charge for this service.
