FORE! NEAT FUNDRAISING IDEA FOR PUBLIC/ACADEMIC LIBRARIES
I just read about Library Mini Golf. You set up a miniature golf course in the stacks--or anywhere else you choose--as a fundraiser. It's already been used by several libraries to raise over US$10,000. Read Jenny Levine's blog post (see below) or go to the non-profit organization's website (also below) for more information. Who knows, maybe a corporate/law/hospital library could try it too!
