Project Cicero depends on the generous support of book publishers as well as corporations to make our book drive and teacher event a success.

For Publishers

Book donations are the life blood of Project Cicero. We seek (and are extremely grateful for) children’s and teen titles—current, backlist and review copies—and particularly need picture books, graphic novels, early readers, science, math, as well as multicultural or Spanish language.

Project Cicero accepts publisher donations year-round. For queries, donations or shipping details, please email
