Event description

Description

***VERY IMPORTANT*** Teachers and librarians MUST be serving in a NYC public school which qualifies for Title 1 benefits. NO ONE ELSE IS ELIGIBLE!!!***

***VERY IMPORTANT*** although Project Cicero runs all weekend, teachers register for a SPECIFIC one hour time slot. READ YOUR CONFIRMATION CAREFULLY. You are assigned a SPECIFIC HOUR, which is under the title of the event. YOU MUST COME AT YOUR ASSIGNED HOUR!!!!

***NO PRE-SCHOOL TEACHERS THIS YEAR***

Project Cicero is an annual book event that distributes for FREE, over 150,000 gently used children's books to PUBLIC SCHOOL teachers/librarians (kindergarten through high school). Books range from picture books, lower & middle school chapter books to geography, history, science and fiction/non-fiction. We do not offer textbooks.

Those that qualify (meaning their schools are verified as serving a low-income population) must individually register for a one hour timeslot to come and collect books for their classrooms (kindergarten through high school).

Teachers must bring a large suitcase (best with wheels) and during their hour are allowed to collect books as many as the suitcase can fit.

Teachers/librarians will receive a CONFIRMATION. Without confirmation, there will not be admission!!!

If there is a problem with registration, or all slots are filled, please address email to: info@projectcicero.org
