Notary services are available by appointment or as staffing allows. Currently a notary is usually available Monday – Thursday, 10:00AM to 5:00PM; Friday 10:00AM to 1:00PM; and Saturday, 10:00AM to 4:00PM.  Call 508-693-3366 for more information or to make an appointment.

A patron whose signature is being notarized must present satisfactory evidence of identity, which is current and includes a photo and signature; for example, a driver’s license or state-issued ID card, U.S. passport, or U.S. military ID card.

Because the Library notaries are not attorneys, they cannot conduct real estate closings, nor provide any assistance with completing or understanding documents presented for notarization. Additionally, should they be required, patrons must provide their own witnesses. If you have any doubts whether your document can be notarized at the Library, please call in advance.

The Library reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to decline to provide notary services if the patron, document, or circumstances raise any issue of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty.

If the Library’s notary is not available, other locations offering notary services include the West Tisbury Town Hall, Howes House (Up-Island Council on Aging), the UPS store in Vineyard Haven, and some local banks and law offices.
