The Garwood Historical Committee has digitalized the local newsletter, under the banner of Gar-Words, that was proved to the service men and women serving in World War II, twice each month during the war years. The newsletter kept overseas residents of Garwood apprised of happy, upbeat news, births, deaths, scores of local sports teams, and general gossip, so that the GIs wouldn't be left out of the loop. Due to size restrictions, only three digitilized copies of Gar-Words are available on the Garwood website.


For all Gar-Words, please see the Circulation Desk at the Library. 

This project was partially funded by a grant through the State of New Jersey administered by the Union County Division of Cultural and Hertiage Affairs.
