Here are some reminders of what’s open and what’s not on Memorial Day in Kane County:

Kane County

Most Kane County offices are closed. Obviously, that doesn’t include the Sheriff’s Office, which is 24-7, 365 days a year.

U.S. Post Offices

U.S. post offices are closed, as well.


Metra generally runs on its usual weekday schedule, but pick out your line on this Metra link to find out exact schedules for your trains.

City Halls, Townships

In general, non-emergency departments for most municipal governments are closed.

To check your town’s schedule, Kane County’s website provides a list of links to the local-government web pages in your neck of the woods and includes lists of cities, villages and townships.

Garbage Pickup Days

In general, garbage pickup days are delayed by a day from your usual garbage-pickup day, but check your local municipality’s public works site to be sure.

Public and Private Schools

Obviously, public and private schools are closed. The Kane County Regional Office of Education website offers a great Public Schools Directory and Private Schools Directory, for more information.

Libraries, Park Districts

Again, it’s not universal, libraries often are closed on Memorial Day.

To find out more about which libraries and park districts are open or closed, visit the individual pages. Here’s a list of links to library districts and park districts in Kane County, once again courtesy of the Kane County, IL, website.

Federal Government

Most federal government offices are closed. That includes Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory here in Kane County.


The Federal Reserve is closed, so most banks are, as well.

Kane County Connects

And, for the record, Kane County Connects will be “open” throughout the holiday, but we’re only posting newsletters next week on Tuesday through Saturday.
