New signs at the courthouse

The courthouse is a favorite place for voting early: on weekdays all the bustle is entertaining in and of itself; on weekends, it’s simple to combine with a visit to the library and any other event of your choice. Sunday, it was easy to check out the music at the Texas Book Festival and kibitz at the children’s chess tourney in Wooldridge Park, between the courthouse and the library.

On the ground floor near the cafeteria, there’s a big new sign up offering the services of a notary public during the hours that the desk is staffed, in exchange for three dollars and a show of identification. This is the same location that has traditionally had a sign advising people in search of a notary public to go elsewhere, so this is a great convenience.
