A number of city offices and public facilities will be closed Friday in observation of the Juneteenth holiday, which commemorates the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States. Austin Public Library branches, Central Library and the Austin History Center will be closed Friday and Saturday. The Austin Animal Center will close on Friday, reopening Saturday. There will not be any changes in trash pickup schedules or schedules at Parks and Recreation facilities. All Austin Public Health Covid-19 vaccination sites will remain open (see walkup clinic hours here) and the health department will be providing vaccinations at several pop-up community events over the Juneteenth weekend.
