The guiding purposes of National Braille Press are to promote the literacy of blind children through braille and to provide access to information that empowers blind people to actively engage in work, family, and community affairs.
Former Boston College student, Stephanie Fernandes, was featured in this video on how braille was integral to her success. Stephanie continues to impress and recently passed the Bar Exam in Pennsylvania.

But what if the child is blind? Read how NBP's new literacy program for blind kids is addressing this critical need.
NBP is honored to be participating in this year's Boston Marathon thanks to John Hancock. By making a donation today, you are not only supporting the Boston Strong community, but also the right for blind people to read!

Henry and Mudge: The First Book - the February selection in our Children's Braille Book Club - marks the return of a best-selling favorite. In this first book in the popular series, Henry, a lonely only child, finally convinces his parents to get him a dog!
The story resonates with young readers. One Amazon reviewer commented, "My son, a kindergartener, was truly driven to read by Henry and Mudge and their fun, loving relationship. He now reads to his delighted 3 year old brother."
