On Monday July 4th, the World Public Library’s annual World eBook Fair launches, which will combine works from Project Gutenberg, the Internet Archive, and other public collections to create a massive 6.5 million title catalog. The collection will include not just ebooks but other media like music and movies, as well as sheet music and dance choreography.

EBookNewser points out that there don’t seem to be any events scheduled during the fair to increase visibility, which seems too bad. At any rate it runs until August 4th.
