Notary services are available at the Chesterfield Township Library during regular library hours. Duly appointed and impartial Notary Publics may take acknowledgments, administer oaths or affirmations, and witness or attest to a signature. Notary services are provided for $5.00 per document.
"The most common function of the notary is to prevent fraud by attesting to the identity of a person signing a document. Notarization on a document certifies that the person whose signature is entered on the document personally appeared before the notary, established his or her identity, and personally signed the document in the presence of the notary."
