Evanston beaches open for the season Saturday, but some other city facilities will be closed for parts of the weekend for the Memorial Day holiday.

The city’s recreation centers will be closed Monday. The civic center and the public library will be closed Sunday and Monday.

You’ll need tokens to use the beach. More information about that is available online.

The holiday will also mean that garbage pickups will be delayed by one day than normal next week, except for condominium pickups which will take place on Friday as usual.

The annual Memorial Day ceremony, organized by American Legion Post 42, will be held at the Fountain Square veterans memorial plaza at 10 a.m. Monday.
