CANTON — Just in time for Presidents Day, Cherokee County students and teachers will get a holiday next week.

While some businesses such as banks will close Monday, most local government offices around the county, as well as retail establishments will be open as usual.

All city offices including Woodstock, Canton, Ball Ground and Waleska will be open Presidents Day except for the city of Holly Springs, which will close for the holiday.

Reinhardt University and Chattahoochee Technical College offices will be open for business.

For those looking to get a little knowledge, all Sequoyah Regional Library System locations will be open on Presidents Day, with the Woodstock Libaray open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Rose Creek Library in Woodstock from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Ball Ground Library from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Hickory Flat Library open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and R.T.
