The State of New Jersey has set the fee at $2.50 per notary signature.
Library Notaries witness a customer signing a document or signing a sworn statement on a document. The Library Notary documents that:
- The signer of the document appeared before the Notary;
- The Notary positively identified the signer; and
- The signer both acknowledged the signature as her or his, and that the signature was made willingly.
The Library provides Notary services in accordance with the New Jersey Notary Public Manual, published by the New Jersey Department of the Treasury; Division of Revenue; Business and Support Services, Notary Section. This Manual is available on the Division of Revenue's web site.
Library Notaries may decline to provide notary service in situations that do not comply with the provisions of this Manual.
The Library provides Notary service to customers on a first-come, first-served basis.
The person who will sign the document must appear personally before the Notary.
The person who will sign the document must be sure that the document is completely filled out, leaving no blanks other than where the customer will sign the document, before appearing before the Library Notary. Library Notaries may not notarize any document with blank spaces.
The person who will sign the document should bring her or his own witnesses, if the document to be notarized requires witnessing.
The person who will sign the document must provide the Notary with at least one valid form of identification that provides a physical description of the signer. The Notary may decline to notarize a document if the signer cannot provide valid identification. Acceptable forms of identification are:
- A current passport from any country, written in a language that the Notary can read;
- A valid drivers license from any state of the United States;
- A valid non-drivers photo identification card from any state of the United States; or

Library Notaries only notarize documents written in English.
Library Notaries must be able to communicate in English directly with the signer. New Jersey law forbids Notaries to use a translator to communicate with the signer.
