Seven things to do in the Rome region this week

3. In its continuing efforts to divert waste from the landfill and to encourage sustainable thinking, on Wednesday, Jervis Public Library will host its semi-annual Recycling Day in the library parking lot between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. That means you have three days to collect items to be recycled — including many that can’t be put out with recyclables at the curb. For more information call the library at 315-336-4570 or stop by the Information Desk.
4. An Ancestor Day will be offered in the Town of Croghan Historian’s Office, 9882 State Route 126, Beaver Falls, Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to noon. The town of Croghan Historians office will be open to help with you with your research needs. There will be lessons on how to find your roots in the Township of Croghan. Did your ancestors own a business, live or work here? Bring your computer if you have it and a list of ancestors you want to know more about. If you don’t have a computer that’s OK.
