The Elisabeth Morrow School partners with Project Cicero NJ On 20 School Book Drive

(ENGLEWOOD, NJ) -- The Elisabeth Morrow School (EMS) in Englewood, New Jersey will once again partner with Project Cicero NJ to host the annual book drive that will benefit public school students from under-resourced schools in New Jersey. Project Cicero takes new and gently used books from donors at public schools and independent schools and redistributes them to needy public schools through an annual book drive. On Saturday, March 7, 2015 from 12:00PM-2PM, approximately 250 teachers from various districts will attend the book drive at The Elisabeth Morrow School and be able to select free books to take back to their classrooms for their students.

Project Cicero accepts new and gently used hardcover and paperback books for children (pre-K through grade 12) and young adults. Project Cicero does not accept textbooks, adult books, library discards or out of date non-fiction/reference books. All teachers from under resourced schools in New Jersey who would like to attend the drive must pre-register online through the following link:

Project Cicero NJ was started in 2012 by two Bergen County residents, Teddi Hunter (Englewood) and Jennifer Backer (Fort Lee), who thought to duplicate the great work that was being done by Project Cicero in NYC. To date, Project Cicero has placed over 2.2 million books into 12,000 classrooms and school libraries reaching 500,000 children in under-resourced schools in NYC. From its first two book drives, Project Cicero NJ has donated over 75,000 books to classrooms in Northern New Jersey. For more information and/or to discuss adding a donor school, please email Project Cicero NJ at
