Joyner Library is currently offering a free notary public service. The service of a notary public is called for by various business and legal documents. A notary public acknowledges, verifies, and proves signatures and administers oaths and affirmations.

To schedule an appointment with the library's notary public, William Gee, contact him at or 252-328-2268. His usual office hours are 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but scheduling an appointment is encouraged to ensure that William will be available when you can come. Please note the following about a notary appointment.

  • You will need to provide a government issued photo ID. A driver license or passport is typical; if you do not have one of those, please contact William in advance to discuss other allowable forms of ID.
  • Do NOT sign any documents in advance.
  • If your documents require witnesses, please arrange for colleagues, friends, or family members, as appropriate to your document, to come to your appointment with you. Some documents, like wills, often require a witness to not be a potential heir or one's medical provider.
  • Please arrive on time for your appointment.
  • Come to the Circulation & Interlibrary Loan service desk, located to the left as you enter Joyner Library, for your appointment and ask for William. A library employee will walk you to William's office or call him forward to meet you.
  • If you have questions about locating the library or parking on the ECU campus, please consult the Directions to Joyner Library page, the ECU campus map, or ECU Parking & Transportation.
