ALA has awarded its 2020 Gale Cengage Learning Financial Development Award to Roxbury (N.J.) Public Library. The annual award is presented to a library organization that exhibited meritorious achievement in carrying out a library financial development project to secure new funding resources for a public or academic library. The winning project was “Mini-Golf in the Library.” The original goal was to raise money to fund an upgrade of the library’s audiovisual equipment. In the second year of the project, funds enabled the library to update furniture in its children’s room.
