Alabama Secretary of State Jim Bennett to Attend National Notary Public Day at Central Library, November 7
Free notary services will be provided on Thursday, November 7, 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Central Library as part of National Notary Public Day. A notarization can cost $5 and up. However, Notaries for Alabama, a support group for notaries, will offer free services in the library’s Atrium, 2100 Park Place.
Unsigned paperwork such as wills, living wills, power of attorney, school permission slips for field trips, and more will be accepted. Real estate forms will not be notarized. Participants must present a valid, government-issued ID.
Notaries for Alabama founder Michelle Riley said that the Alabama Secretary of State’s office maintains records of all notaries. Secretary of State Jim Bennett will be at the library at 10:15 a.m. to show his support. Charles Long, an administrative assistant to Birmingham Mayor William A. Bell Sr.’s office, will present a proclamation. Notaries for Alabama will also offer information on how to become a notary, how to join the group, and how to find reputable and professional notaries in the area.
“There are people in the community who struggle to come up with $5 to pay a notary. If you need a notary to come to you, the travel fee could be $25 or higher,’’ says Riley. “By offering free services on November 7, we are showing our support to our Birmingham community.’’
“The library has gone above and beyond efforts to make this day possible,’’ Riley says. “”We thank the library for opening its doors to us.’’
