LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Government offices, courts, schools, libraries, banks and post offices will be closed Monday for the Presidents Day holiday.

Trash services citywide will operate as normal, along with Metro buses and rail lines.

The following Foothill Transit lines will run on a weekend schedule: 178, 185, 187, 195, 197, 269, 272, 274, 280, 281, 282, 284, 285, 286, 289, 291, 480, 482, 486, 488, 492 and the Silver Streak. No other lines will be running.

If you’re looking for something to do on this President’s Day, admission will be free at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library & Museum in Yorba Linda, while the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley will mark the holiday with a free set of family-oriented activities.

The Nixon Library in Yorba Linda will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the first 100 guests receiving a free slice of cherry pie.

Traditionally known as Washington’s Birthday, the Monday holiday can never fall on the actual anniversary of Washington’s birth in 1732 because the holiday falls between Feb. 15 and 21.

The holiday was shifted from Feb. 22 to the third Monday in February 1971 under the terms of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968.
