Veterans Day 2017: what’s open, what’s closed — and when

(Correction appended) Tomorrow is Veterans Day, a federal holiday. But since Veterans Day falls on a Saturday this year, schools and many government offices are closed today in observance of the holiday.

Federal town and county offices and courts are closed today, but state offices are open.

The N.Y. Stock Exchange and banks are open today, as is the U.S. Postal Service. Banks and post offices will be closed tomorrow. There will be no mail delivery tomorrow.

Floyd Memorial Library, Southold Library, Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library are open today and closed tomorrow. Mattituck-Laurel Library’s website contains conflicting information: a notice on the homepage said the library will be closed today and open tomorrow. The calendar in the library newsletter, which is also posted on the website, states the opposite (open today, closed tomorrow). 

The Long Island Railroad and Suffolk Transit buses are running on regular weekday schedules today.

Veterans Day ceremonies will take place today at 11 a.m. at the Griswold-Terry-Glover American Legion Post 803 in Southold. Ceremonies will be held at the Raymond J. Cleaves American Legion Post 861 in Mattituck tomorrow. There will also be a 1 p.m. ceremony at Calverton National Cemetery tomorrow.

Correction:  The original version of this story incorrectly stated that the Southold American Legion ceremony would be held tomorrow. It is scheduled for today at 11 a.m.
