Donations of Braille Books Needed!

Donations of Braille Books Needed

Calling all Braille readers! It's that time again: Time to sort
through all those boxes of Braille books in your basement or spare
room, and donate those
gently used but no longer needed Braille books to the 2012 Braille
Book Fair sponsored by the National Organization of Parents of Blind
Children and the
National Association to Promote the Use of Braille. Our primary goal
is to get more Braille books into the hands of children, youth, and
beginning adult
readers, so here's what we need most: Books in good condition,
print-Braille picture storybooks, and leisure reading (fiction or
nonfiction) books. Cookbooks
are always in demand, as are books about sports. Children are so
hungry for their very own books that every year, despite generous
donations, most of our
books for young children are gone in less than an hour. So, begin
your search through the boxes in your basement and spare room and get
those books shipped
