What will be open and closed on Presidents’ Day?

See also

Presidents’ Day will be observed on Monday, February 17, 2014. The holiday was created by combining to previous February federal holidays, Lincoln’s birthday and Washington’s Birthday. The move was made to add Martin Luther King Junior’s Birthday to the calendar without adding an additional paid holiday.

All retail stores normally open on Mondays will be open their normal business hours. Many traditionally offer special sales to drawing customers off work. In Michigan, due to the relatively small role the holiday plays on the calendar very few businesses are closed.

The United States Postal Service will close all post offices and there will be no home or business deliveries on the holiday. State and local offices will also be closed.

Most libraries will be open although some may have reduced hours. Check your local library as some exciting special programs are being presented.

The Rochester Hills Public Library does not have any special programs for Presidents’ Day but they will be featuring two children’s programs. Jazzercise for Kids at 10 a.m. and Yoga for Kids at 3 p.m. .

Trash collection will be on normal pick-up days during the week of Presidents’ Day as Allied Waste does not observe the holiday.
