Notary Services

Notaries provide a variety of services and add assurance that the document’s signature is genuine.

North Shelby Library does not handle Wills, Divorce Decrees, Real Estate Closings, or Immigration/Passport Documents.  We cannot notarize documents in languages other than English.

The first Notary signature is free, any further signatures are $5.00 each.  The limit is 5 signatures.

Services are available by appointment only.


What to Bring:

  • Bring a valid, government issued photo ID.
  • Bring all pages of the document, not just the signature page.
  • We recommend that you do not sign or date the document. Some documents must be signed in the Notary’s presence.

What to Expect:

  • The Notary will review the documents to determine the type of document and whether the
    documents can be notarized.
  • The Notary will identify the signer(s) with government issued ID.
  • The Notary will ask if the signer(s) is signing voluntarily.
  • The Notary will record the type of document and signer(s)’s information in their official ledger.
  • The signer(s) will sign the ledger and the document.
  • The Notary will complete the certificate with the Notary’s signature and stamp.
  • Notarization usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on the length and type of document.
