Presque Isle District Library

Notary Public

The Presque Isle District Library, Rogers City Library at 181 E. Erie and the Onaway Library at 20774 State Street, offers basic notary services as a courtesy. There is no charge and the hours of service vary daily. Persons seeking notary services should contact the library at 989.734.2477 prior to visiting to ensure a notary will be available.
Library Notaries witness document signing or signing a sworn statement on a document. They verify, by their signature and seal, that you are who you say you are.
  • A valid photo ID with signature is required of all persons seeking notary service.
  • Documents must be signed in front of the notary.
  • Persons seeking notaries are responsible for knowing their document, the type of notary service needed, and where to sign. By law, notaries cannot give legal advice or explain documents. Please seek legal advice or contact the document issuing or receiving agency if help is needed. Legal help for Michigan residents is available at Michigan Legal Help
Library notary staff does not/cannot notarize the following (other notary resources are listed below):
  • Documents outside of the library premises (for mobile notaries, see resources below)
  • Estate Planning Documents: Wills, Trusts, Power of Attorney, etc.
  • Real Estate Transactions
  • I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification forms
