Living the Life You Want

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

Baltimore, Maryland (June 8, 2015): The National Federation of the Blind is pleased to announce the addition of two new bimonthly publications to the NFB-NEWSLINE service: Talking Book Topics and Braille Book Review. These are published by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped of the Library of Congress (NLS).

Mark Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind, said: “NFB-NEWSLINE and the National Library Service are invaluable resources to the blind community. We are pleased with the success in 2010 of integrating NFB-NEWSLINE into the NLS Talking Book Players, and we are happy to further enhance integration with NLS services by sharing these two bimonthly publications with our subscribers.”
