Open Books Project


The Open Books Project was a Small Press Distribution program to reach out to seniors by supporting book groups.

From January until June, 2011, four book groups took place in three Marin County libraries and in a community center in Mill Valley. This spring four more book groups will take place in Marin County. For more information about the groups or to create your own book group please contact SPD at

Marin County Free Library and Engage As You Age, a Bay Area wide service organization for seniors, are SPD's partners in this pilot program.

This pilot project recognizes that the growing population of highly literate seniors in California (and elsewhere) will benefit from guided access to SPD's independently published books. The Open Books Project (formerly called the "I Remember" project) provides facilitators, supporting materials and free SPD books for everyone participating in the program.
