About this event

**IMPORTANT***This is the VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION,  only for HELPING at the event and NOT for taking books home


Thursday a few hours, and all day Friday April 8th, Saturday April 9th and Sunday April 10th, 2022

Volunteers (Adults, college students, and students in 6th -12th grades) are needed to help Project Cicero sort, organize, display and distribute gently-used children's books to teachers from under-resourced public schools in NYC. Over 150,000 books will be processed. 

It's fun, it's satisfying, it's a New York City unique event. Come be a part of the happening!

NOTE: For teachers & librarians wishing to take books for your school, please register at starting Feb. 1st. Registering here DOES NOT allow you to collect books to take home. THIS SITE is volunteering to help ONLY.

To Register as a Volunteer, we prefer TWO hours or more: 

Please select the hours you intend to participate. For example, if coming from 1:30-4:30 then select a ticket in each category 1:30-2:30, 2:30-3:30 AND 3:30-4:30. This allows us to  plan appropriately knowing at each hour how many volunteers we can expect. 

We will be in touch before the event, and if your plans change, we can be reached at:

Thank you and we look forward to having you on board!


Is there a minimum age for volunteers?

Yes-- students must be in 6th grade or older. A chaperone is encouraged for middle school students, please contact

If I am part of a group, do I register here?

If your group organizer is taking care of it, then you do not register here separately-- the organizer will have the list. BUT if your group is asking each member to register individually, then YES, please register here and there will be a slot to write the name of your group (XXX from YYY School, or XXX Alumni Group, XXX School Track Team, etc.)

If you are a group organizer overseeing multiple attendees, you can contact us at  to discuss a group registration in lieu of having each attendee register separately.

Do I have to bring a printed ticket to the event?

No, your name will be on a list.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes, that is fine if the person attending tells us when arriving and checking in.

Project Cicero is an annual non-profit book drive designed to create - or supplement - school and classroom libraries for children in under-resourced New York City public schools.

Since its inception in 2001, Project Cicero has distributed 3,250,000 new and gently used books to 20,000 New York City classrooms and libraries, reaching 700,000 students. 

Over 1,200 teachers from all over New York City attend our event in early March each year. Hundreds of student, parent and teacher volunteers assist in all aspects of collecting and distributing the books.
