Birmingham, Ala. - The Birmingham Public Library plays a vital role in the City of Birmingham, striving to transform lives through community, education and technology. Consistent with this vision, BPL offers basic notary services for the benefit of its patrons.

The service is based on the availability of the library notaries. While a notary is usually available at most locations, it is a good idea to call ahead to make sure one will be there when you arrive. Valid photo identification is required of any patron seeking notary service.
