Grinnell Library Mission Statement
The mission of the Grinnell Library is to provide free access to a variety of informational materials, library services, and programs using its resources and those of the Mid-Hudson Library System, to meet the educational, cultural, and recreational needs of the community.
- Patron Code of Conduct
- Child and Vulnerable Adult Safety Policy
- Computer Use Policy
- Community Room Use Policy & Application
We do have notary services, free of charge; however, the notary public requires photo identification and the notary must visually observe the signature(s) on the document(s) to be notarized.
In other words, if you already signed the document(s), a notary public is not authorized to notarize the document.
