Before you go off to enjoy a three-day weekend for Memorial Day, you should know what city services are going to be affected for the holiday.

Street sweeping violations will not be enforced on Memorial Day, but parking meters will be, unless the sign says “Exempt on Holidays.”

Trash and recycling will still be collected Monday.

If your car has been towed by the city and you need to get it, you either have to wait until Tuesday or pay an extra fee to get it.

Long Beach public libraries are normally closed on Mondays, so they will all be closed on Saturday to observe Memorial Day, but Bay Shore, Burnett, El Dorado and Michelle Obama Neighborhood Libraries will be open on Sunday.

All post offices are also closed for the holiday.
