Jervis kicks-off summer reading program


ROME — Jervis Public Library, 613 N. Washington St. will host an “Ocean Fossils” event on Thursday, June 30, at 5:30 p.m.

Part of the summer reading program, attendees will learn about fossils, how they form, and even make some fossils of their own. “We will also discuss the types of rocks fossils are found in and how we can find ocean fossils in our own backyards,” library officials noted.

All are welcome to attend this free children’s program on the library lawn. Bringing a blanket or lawn chairs is encouraged as the grass is often damp. In the event of poor weather, the event will be moved indoors, with limited seating available.
