Notary Service is available to residents of Berkeley, Illinois at no cost and is handled as staffing levels allow. The Library's notary will notarize documents at their discretion, but is not able to notarize real estate and immigration documents. Be sure to bring your government-issued identification with you. Documents must be signed in front of the notary, and all people signing the document must be present. It is highly recommended that you call the library (708-544-6017) prior to visiting to insure that the notary is available or if you have questions regarding the documents to be notarized.
The Berkeley Public Library is happy to partner with Roy Strom Waste Disposal to assist residents by offering a collection point for certain items not otherwise easily recyclable. Just inside the main entrance to the library, you will find receptacles for toner cartridges, batteries, and CFL lightbulbs. For information on what materials are eligible for residential curbside recycling service, please see Roy Strom's Website.
