Last year, Bridget and Erin pledged to raise money for NBP by running the Boston Marathon but they were stopped before they reached the finish line. Undeterred by the terrible acts of that day, they will complete the 26.2 miles this year! Support their efforts here.



Work at NBP!

Are you a braille reader with a penchant for finding contraction blunders and formatting gaffes while devouring the latest James Patterson novel? Or perhaps you are a non-fiction junkie; more inclined to expand your horizons with exacting facts and dates? If you are an avid braille reader with an acute attention to detail, you may be well suited to a career in braille proofreading. National Braille Press is currently seeking full-time proofreaders to work in our production department. See all career opportunities at National Braille Press.
