Notary Public

Marshall Public Library is pleased to offer notary services free of charge!

The Head Librarian will be available on a first come, first served basis Monday thru Friday, from 10 am to 5 pm to provide this service.

Valid photo identification is required:  Driver’s License; State ID; Passport; or Current Employee ID. Witnesses, if needed,  will not be provided.  Witnesses may not be solicited from customers using the library. In order to serve as a witness, a person must personally know the person whose document is being notarized and must be in possession of valid photo identification. Documents in any language other than English will not be notarized.

Certain documents cannot be copied and notarized: Birth Certificates; Death Certificates; and Marriage Certificates. In the event that documents have been previously signed or have any issue of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty for the library, the Notary may, at his/ her discretion, decline to provide Notary services.

Can't get to the library?

We can come to you!  For many years, the library has offered a valuable service to our  homebound patrons.  If any patron is not able to get to the library for an extended period of time because of an illness,  injury, or lack of mobility, we are happy to deliver materials to their residence.  We do this for residents at Burnsides Community Health Center,  Robert Flowers Village, and to the Villas of Hollybrook.  Please contact the library to learn more about this service for yourself or a loved one. 

You can also access our online catalog at home to request materials or  renew items already checked out on your card. Click on "Search" or "My Account" near the top left-hand corner of the library homepage. Your username is the barcode number from your library card and the password/PIN is the last 4 digits of your telephone number.  You can also use this info to log-in to 3M Cloud to access e-books for your e-reader or other device.
