Adult Services

The Adams Public Library System's adult services offers many services for the general public including research and reference help, laminating services, faxing, copiers, music events, genealogy and local history, grab& go projects, in-person programming, and much more. The library's combined collections include over 100,000 items - books, magazines, DVDs, art prints, audio books, and more. In addition, as a member of the Evergreen Indiana library catalog consortium, library cardholders have access to millions of items in print and online from libraries throughout Indiana at the click of a button.

Notary Services

The Library has staff available to notarize documents free of charge. Please contact the branch in advance to schedule an appointment. A library card is not required for this service. Donations are appreciated.

  • Documents to be notarized must be signed in front of the Notary.
  • Documents to be notarized must be completely filled out prior to meeting with the Notary (but not signed). 
  • All people signing the document(s) must be physically present to have their signature notarized.
  • Valid photo identification is required for each person signing the document(s). Valid ID includes: current (unexpired) state-issued driver's license or ID card, passport or military ID. 
  • If the document requires witnesses, it will expedite the process if the witnesses accompany you.
  • Notaries reserve the right to decline service if any of the above guidelines are not met, if there are concerns about the authenticity of the documents, or if the individual(s) signing the documents appear under duress or unaware of what they are signing.
