To commemorate the Anzac centenary, Gosford City Library with the assistance of volunteers has created a series of educational resources that reflect the service and sacrifices made by Central Coast men and women who went to the 1914-18 war.

These local resources form a major part of Gosford City Council’s contribution to Anzac 2015 centenary remembrances, marking 100 years since our nation's involvement in the First World War.
