On Friday, May 2nd the Passaic County Historical Society (PCHS) library reopened to patrons wishing to conduct research. The PCHS Board of Trustees welcomes the new Research Specialist, Jesse McGarity, to their staff and encourage researchers to visit on Fridays, 1pm-4pm and well as the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.
“The PCHS Library encompasses a rich collection of materials related to the history of cities and towns within Passaic County as well as an extensive body of genealogical information on thousands of families who lived within the county. The library contains approximately 2,800 books. These include atlases, city directories, books by local authors, published genealogies, and local histories. The library has a manuscript collection and thousands of family group sheets on file.”
