Volunteers needed to help Project Cicero 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!
If you are a teacher or librarian wishing to take books for your school, please register on website www.projectcicero.org starting Feb. 1st.
To Register as a Volunteer:
Please select the hours you intend to participate. For example, if coming from 1:00-4:00, then select a ticket in each category 1:00-2:00, 2:00-3:00 and 3:00-4:00. This allows us to plan appropriately knowing at each hour how many volunteers we can expect.
It is not binding. We will be in touch before the event, and if your plans change, we can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and we look forward to having you on board!
If I am part of a group, do I register here?
Yes, there will be a place during the registration to identify the group. But we need each attendee's information so we can send confirmations, updates and reminders.
If you are a group organizer overseeing multiple attendees, you can contact us at email@example.com to discuss a group registration in lieu of having each attendee register separately.

When & Where
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 over 2,000,000 new and gently used books to 11,000 New York City classrooms and libraries, reaching 500,000 students.
Over 1,000 teachers from all over New York City are invited to make their selections at our event in early March each year. Hundreds of student, parent and teacher volunteers assist in all aspects of collecting and distributing the books.
Project Cicero is a partnership of New York City parent and student volunteers, The New York Society Library, Vornado Realty Trust, and The New York Post, in association with Teach for America New York and the New York City Teaching Fellows.
