Notary Services Now at KFL
The Library is now offering notary services! The service will be available most weekdays, but we recommend calling in advance to ensure that a notary is available. Please remember to bring a valid photo ID and, of course, the document to be notarized. Most documents must be signed in the presence of the notary to be valid so it's best to not sign in advance. There will be a small $2 fee per document.
For more information, email us or give us a call at 985-2173.
