In honor of Veterans Day on Sunday, Nov. 11, the Beverly Hills Public Library is closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
City Hall and the Beverly Hills Unified School District are closed Monday.
Veterans Day honors the service of U.S. military veterans. It's celebrated every year on Nov. 11, and coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world. These holidays mark the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that brought forth the temporary cessation of hostilities during World War I. The armistice was signed at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of November in 1918. World War I officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
While Veterans Day celebrates all U.S. military veterans, Memorial Day, held the last Monday of May each year, remembers those who died while serving in the nation's armed forces.
