When a business matter requires a notary, you don’t have to leave Wellesley to find one. There are plenty of places in town ready and willing to help out including the Wellesley Library and Town Hall.
A notary serves as a third-party witness to not only verify the signature of a legal document, but to attest to the fact that all parties who signed did so willingly and under their own power and that the signatures are authentic. When getting something notarized, make sure you bring identification such as:
Here are some places in Wellesley where you can get documents notarized:
The Wellesley Free Library now offers notary services available by appointment, subject to the availability of the notary. To make an appointment or for more information, email [email protected] or call the library at (781) 235 – 1610
Note: they generally can’t notarize for real estate purposes. When you contact them, spell out what you need to spare yourself an unnecessary trip.
The Town Clerk’s office also provides notary public services at no charge. Please call in advance to be sure a notary will be available for you. 781-431-1019 ext 2252.
Almost all the many, many full-service banks in Wellesley have a notary on staff during banking hours. Some banks are very casual about the service and will help you out whether or not you have an account. Others prefer to notarize only for their account holders. In general, banks can handle anything that needs to be notarized. Just let them know ahead of time if you need two witnesses because if the bank is busy, they won’t be able to pull tellers out from behind the counter without advance warning.
Here are Wellesley banks, real estate agents, and an on-line resource that offer notary services:

FYI I tried to get a document notarized mid-July 2018. I went to all 3 of the locations listed above. The town clerk’s office and the Wellesley free library no longer have notaries available, and apparently, the UPS on Washington has never had notary services and they weren’t sure why they were listed.

Hi, Sara. I checked in with all three locations. The Wellesley Free Library, main branch, most definitely has a notary available. In fact, I used that service myself in mid-July 2018. The town clerk’s office does as well. Just call ahead to make sure the notary can be there at the time you need. As for the UPS on Washington St, right you are. Thanks for brining that to my attention. I have removed UPS from the post. Thanks for reading The Swellesley Report.
