Notary service

The Beverly Public Library has notaries on staff at our Main library and Farms branch who are available to notarize documents by appointment, or as staffing allows.

To schedule an appointment, and to verify that your document meets the Massachusetts Notary Law requirements, please contact the notary at the location of your choice:

This service is available most weekdays and Tuesday evenings at both locations.

Be sure to bring a photo ID (license, state-issued ID, or passport). Documents to be notarized may be filled out, but must be unsigned.

Because we are not experts in law or finance, we are unable to notarize some documents including: copy certifications, powers of attorney, wills, trusts, real estate closings, and various types of financial documents. Please call in advance to verify that your document can be notarized at the library if you have any doubts.

This service is provided free of charge.

If the library’s notary is not available, the Beverly City Clerk’s Office offers notary service for a nominal fee.

Additionally, banks, office supply stores, and shipping and mailing services sometimes offer notary services, but may charge a fee.
