  • East Lake Community Library is glad to offer notary services for professionally composed legal documents from Monday through Friday from 10:00am-1:00pm. We have one notary on staff for your convenience. We can certify a copy, affirm an oath and/or verify a signature.

  • The notary services cost $5.00 per document or "stamp."

  • We ask that you call ahead to make sure a staff notary is available to serve your needs.

  • Note: if you need a signature verified, please do not sign your document until you are in the presence of the notary.


Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a resource-sharing service that allows you to request books that are neither owned by the East Lake Community Library, nor available within the Pinellas Public Library System.

  • We do not provide ILL services for DVDs, Blu-Rays, Music CDs, Reference Books, or Genealogy Materials.

  • Turnaround time for loan requests is typically 3 weeks. Some items are more readily available than others, so, by necessity, we can't guarantee the receipt or delivery time of any requested book.

  • Forms are available at the Reference Desk or you can submit your request online by clicking HERE.



**As of June 1, 2020, Proctoring is unavailable until further notice. Thank you.**
