We have one in our lobby and I'm glad we do, but it is not without its problems. Main thing is limiting time so folks aren't monopolizing it or parking there all day conducting business when others need it. But it's a good service and keeps folks from tying up a staff phone.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Free phone for patrons

We are considering getting rid of our pay phone and replacing it with a free phone for patrons.  Have or are any of your libraries providing a phone specifically for patron use.  I'm not talking about letting them use a staff phone at ref or circ, which we do for kids to call home for a ride.

My mind tells me this could create horror stories/situations, but maybe, just maybe it's worked out for some of you?
