Notary Services are available Monday-Friday 10:00 am to 5:30 pm and Saturdays 10:00 am to 2:30 pm for $6 per document and $1 per additional signature (cash only). Please call the library (972-837-4540) ahead of time to check if a notary is available.
Do not sign your documents until you are in front of a Notary Public. Notary Publics WILL NOT complete a notary form if a document has already been signed.
Documents must have a clear notary paragraph and signature area. If the document does not have one, a notarial certificate may be requested. The person for whom a notarization is performed will choose the notarial certificate, and the Notary Publics may add that certificate to the document. Notary Publics WILL NOT advise or choose which notarial certificate for the document. If a notarial certificate is not requested or chosen from the forms available, Notary Publics have the right to not notarize the document.
Notary Publics WILL NOT certify copies of recordable documents such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, or drivers licenses. Recordable documents are may be obtained by contacting the recording entity, such as the secretary of state's office, a court of law, a county clerk, or the Bureau of Vital Statistics.
