Braille Book Fair

After the Annual Meeting, revel in a book lovers dream—the 2018 Braille Bookfair.

Children can browse through hundreds of braille books, and choose books they enjoy to take home with them, all free of charge!

Children can decide to take books with them, or UPS volunteers will be on hand to help box and ship books directly to your home.

This is truly a one of a kind experience, and is definitely a convention highlight for many families.



Calling all Braille readers, teachers, and parents! It’s that time again: Time to sort through all those boxes of Braille books and donate those gently used but no longer needed Braille books to the 2018 Braille Book Fair sponsored by the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children. 
Our primary goal is to get more Braille books into the hands of children, youth, and beginning adult readers.

Needed items:
PRINT/BRAILLE STORY BOOKS (AKA TWIN VISION) 
BOOKS IN GOOD CONDITION 
LEISURE READING (FICTION OR NONFICTION) BOOKS

Children are so hungry for their very own books that every year, despite generous donations of books, 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 to:

2018 Braille Book Fair 
National Federation of the Blind 
200 East Wells Street at Jernigan Place 
Baltimore, MD 21230

Please note that you are shipping the books FREE MATTER FOR THE BLIND; you do not need to pay shipping cost for braille items. Hand write, stamp or affix a label to the upper right hand corner of the box stating: FREE MATTER FOR THE BLIND. Take your package(s) to your local Post Office. There is no shipping fee for Free Matter for the Blind when mailed through the Post Office.
