Project Cicero (annual book drive for public schools in NYC)
Project Cicero collects new and gently used books for children and young adults. Primarily, Project Cicero receives books from families with children in 100+ New York City independent, public and parochial schools. Collected books are then unpacked, sorted, and displayed by hundreds of volunteers at the Hotel Pennsylvania.
Currently, the organization is exploring other safe ways to get books into the hands of NYC public school students. Updated instructions on how to pick up free books for your child will be posted later in the summer 2021. Learn more at or send a message to
