This year the Addison Twp. Library finally started accepting credit/debit card payments using Square! 

    * Patrons love it....so many people have stopped carrying cash. 
    * Also, we have more people than ever paying larger fines! 
    * Staff find it easy to process! 
    * Square fees are reasonable and worth it! 
    * We have a minimum of $5.00. 

With warmest regards,

Quick question for the collective... does your library accept credit and/or debit cards for payments? If yes, do you use Square or something else? If you use Square, please share your experience - pros, cons, etc. Do you charge a fee or require a minimum charge? 
I'm trying to convince my Board that this is a good idea, but they are resistant. We get requests at least a couple times a week, so I obviously think it's a good idea from a customer service perspective. From what I've read, I don't see any negatives, but I'd appreciate your honest feedback. 
Please reply off-list; I can compile responses if requested.
