We are open today, though WTOP is reporting that area libraries and schools are closed.
"If you're thinking about using this time to catch up on some errands, consider this: Columbus Day is a federal holiday, which means all federal, state and local government offices will be closed including schools, libraries and courts"Not true. The Montgomery County schools are also open and we can hear the children on the fields behind us. The Montgomery County libraries are closed.
Update at 3:30 PM: WTOP has amended the story. It now reads ...
"It's a federal holiday, which means all federal, state and local government offices are closed. Courts, banks and most post offices are also closed. The Merrifield Post Office on Lee Highway in Virginia is open until 5 p.m. and the Takoma Park Library is open."Posted by library at October 8, 2007 10:43 AM
