Public Notary Services

Persons seeking public notary services must contact Laura at the Brandon Township Public Library at (248) 627-1474 to make an appointment.

  • A valid photo ID with signature is required of all persons seeking notary service.
  • Documents must be signed by all parties in front of the notary.
  • Persons seeking notaries are responsible for knowing their document, the type of notary service needed, and where to sign. By law, notaries cannot give legal advice or explain documents. Please seek legal advice or contact the document issuing or receiving agency if help is needed.
  • Persons needing witness signatures for their documents are required to bring their own witnesses with them. The library does not provide witnesses.
  • There is no charge for notary services.

Library notary staff does not offer electronic/digital notary services and does not/cannot notarize the following (see other notary resources below):

  • Documents outside of the library premises.
  • Previously signed documents.
  • Blank or incomplete documents.
  • Real Estate Transactions: Mortgages, Deeds, Closing Documents, etc.
  • I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification forms
  • Michigan Vital Records: Birth Death, Marriage, Divorce (these are done by State and County officials)
  • Certify or notarize that a document/record is an original or true copy of another record. In Michigan, a notary can only acknowledge the signature of the issuer or holder (person on the document) making a true copy statement on, or attached to, the document.
  • Documents written in a language other than English.
  • Provide a Medallion signature guarantee stamp (these are done through a financial institution participating in the Medallion program).
  • Provide an Apostille (this is issued by your Secretary of State’s office or Notary Commissioning Agency).

Notaries reserve the right to decline any document for any reason.
