Arlington Public Library closed Feb. 20 for George Washington Day

While the holiday is referred to as “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government, it is officially called “George Washington Day” in the commonwealth of Virginia.

The naming of this holiday varies so widely across the country that there is even a Wikipedia page devoted to the celebration of Washington’s Birthday.
