The Summerdale Public Library offers notary services to help make life easier. Once your documents are notarized, the library will also make any extra copies you need.
Why do documents need to be notarized?
Certain documents must be notarized in order to have legal effect. Given the inherent formal and corresponding significance of this subject of legal documents that must be notarized, state governments have deemed it necessary to enlist a trained individual to assist with their execution. A "notary public," following his or her official appointment , performs as a quasi-public officer to attest to the proper execution of these important documents.
Types of documents that may require notarization*:
Be Prepared for Your Notary Visit.
Bring a valid, government issued photo ID with you when you come to the library for notary services.
Do not sign any papers until you are in front of the notary.
Some documents may require witnesses in addition to the notarization. The notary public is not legally allowed to notarize and sign as a signature witness.
