Donations of braille books needed

This is one of those items that came in my e-mail and I know some of my readers are braille readers - so thought I'd pass the request along. 

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
