We are working to raise $5,000 to purchase a braille embosser. The Council strongly believes in making our written materials available in the preferred format of our readers. An embosser is essential for providing braille to our staff, board, volunteers, and readers of our newsletters. A braille embosser prints braille on both sides of a page, and creates multiple copies in a timely manner, from documents created on a computer. To make the number of copies needed, and of the quality expected by our readers, we need a working backup embosser to use when our older one needs repair or cleaning. Without a backup, the repair process would leave us without an embosser for six to eight weeks.
New items will be added until the bidding begins, so check back often!
