E-book Project Duo Offers Talk, Texts at Library

Friday December 05, 2003

The founder and CEO of Project Gutenberg—the nonprofit venture which makes thousands of books available free through their website, www.gutenberg.net—will appear at the Berkeley Public Library Dec. 11, and all who attend the session will walk away with either a CD containing about 3,500 e-books or a DVD containing nearly 9,400. 

Michael Hart and Greg Newby will tell how the project has expanded from 100 titles on the Dec. 10, 1993 launch, to over 10,000 today. 

The free public meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the library’s third floor meeting room, 2090 Kittredge St. Guests are reminded not to wear scented products.
