Approved by:
Board of Trustees

Revised Date:




The library system shall observe the following days as holidays for full-time employees and will be closed to the public for library service.

New Year’s Eve (close at 5:30pm)
New Year’s Day

Easter Sunday (no employee is scheduled for work)
Memorial Day
Independence Day
Labor Day
Veteran’s Day (usually Nov. 11)

If a holiday falls on Saturday or Sunday, the library director is authorized to designate the appropriate weekday for the holiday observance based on the Hall County government and business community closing schedule.

Part-time and temporary employees are not paid for holidays. Hours that would normally be scheduled on a day that is closed for a holiday may be scheduled as convenient for the library system’s operation.
Full-time employees will be entitled to take a different day off if their scheduled day off falls on a library closing holiday. The day off will be scheduled with the approval of their immediate supervisor.

** Full time staff members receive three paid holidays at Christmas: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the day after Christmas. Because Christmas Eve falls on the weekend, we must a two different day. I recommend providing all full time staff a floating holiday during the month of December or January.
