What’s open, what’s closed this week?

Thanksgiving means 4-day weekend for some

Express Staff Writer

    While most city and county employees will get a four-day weekend for Thanksgiving this year, banks and post offices will be open for business as usual on Friday.
    The Blaine County offices will be closed Thursday and Friday. Though typically the county makes up for holidays by remaining open an extra day the week after a holiday, County Clerk JoLynn Drage said that wouldn’t be the case for Thanksgiving.
    “It’s the only one we don’t make up for,” she said.
    The city offices of Ketchum, Sun Valley, Hailey, Bellevue and Carey will all be closed on Thursday and Friday, opening as usual on Monday, Nov. 26.
    The Ketchum and Hailey post offices will be closed for the holiday, but open as usual on Friday, Nov. 23.
    The Hailey Public Library on Main Street in Hailey will be closed Thursday and Friday, but open on Saturday, Nov. 24, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    The Community Library in Ketchum will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, and close for Thanksgiving, but reopen at 1 p.m. on Friday. The library will also be open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The city offices of Ketchum, Sun Valley, Hailey, Bellevue and Carey will be closed on Thursday and Friday.

    The Bellevue Library will be closed the entirety of the holiday weekend, starting Thursday and spanning through Sunday. The library will reopen Monday as usual. The Little Wood Library in Carey will be closed Thursday but will be open on Wednesday from 3:30-7 p.m.
    Bank of the West, Mountain West Bank, Zions Bank, U.S. Bank, D. L. Evans, Idaho Independent Bank, Ireland Bank in Carey and Wells Fargo will only be closed on Thursday. The banks will reopen for business on Friday.
    The Idaho Mountain Express will also be taking off the entire holiday weekend. Though staff will print and publish papers on both Wednesday, Nov. 21, and Friday, Nov. 23, the offices will be closed on Thursday and Friday.
    The Friday, Nov. 23, edition of the Idaho Mountain Express is the annual Snow Issue, dedicated to the upcoming winter season. The advertising deadline for the Friday paper has passed.
    The next deadline for display and classified ads for the Wednesday, Nov. 28, paper is at 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26.
