We have Notaries on staff and are pleased to offer this service free of charge.
Criteria that The Brookfield Library Notaries follow:
You must sign document(s) in front of Notary. Notaries cannot sign documents unless they are certain that the customer is who he/she purports to be.
Customer must provide Notary with valid photo identification and one other form of identification with or without a photo (for example, a credit card). Both forms of identification must include your signature.
Acceptable forms of Identification include:
State-issued driver’s license
State-issued identification card
U.S. military identification card
Resident alien identification card (green card)
A document to be notarized must consist of a legal form. (It cannot be a handwritten piece of paper.)
Each Notary will each maintain a journal wherein each transaction will be noted.
If a state referred to in the document is other than Connecticut, a Notary must cross out the state cited and replace it using the state of Connecticut. Notaries in the library hold credentials only in Connecticut.
Information to be notarized must appear on the document pages. (Notaries will not notarize blank pages or pages not related to the body of the document.)
We do not notarize:
Powers of Attorney
Health Care Documents
Last Will and Testaments or land records that would end up in the Town’s Vault.
We will fax documents at the cost of $1.00 per page. There is no fee for the cover page.
