There are some questions that seem to come up regularly at the library, and one of the most common inquires we get is, “Is there a notary here?

The answer to that question used to be “no,” but since September 2021, the Marathon County Public Library has offered notary services at its Wausau Headquarters and it’s a resource that has been incredibly popular.  

After years of patron inquiries and requests, Adult Services Librarian Julie K. took the steps needed to become a certified Wisconsin Notary Public. Notary services are offered on a walk-in basis, and fluctuate slightly based on her work schedule and availability. The service is offered to the public for free, whereas many banks and other institutions with a notary charge a fee or require you to be a member. 

In the first few months after debuting this service, MCPL saw an average of 10-15 patrons seeking a notary each month. That number has continued to increase as of late, and now it's not uncommon to see 20 patrons or more seeking a notary each month. Common items that need notarizing include immigration papers, auto titling forms, property and real estate documents, wills and end-of-life directives.
