Library

Holley Smith
Hello,
I have done workshops before at a library years ago. They let me charge for cost of supplies, but had a limit of $5 per person.  I was hoping to do that again and went to my local library to set it up.
They informed me that you can only do FREE classes, no charge, even for cost of supplies! I informed her that I've done this before and was able to charge $5 per person for cost of materials used. She said that a library is a non profit and that they cannot charge a fee, even for supply cost!
I didn't want to argue with her and she was implying that I was lying....which I'm not, lol.

 Anyways, just wanted to see if anyone has ever done classes at a local library before and if you were able to charge for supplies? Is this a new thing, or did I get lucky before?  Where do you find new customers? Is there some other way to have a open public class (sign up/register ahead of time) and charge for materials? Somewhere that doesn't cost me money to use a room?
Thanks for any input you may have! ;)

I do classes at Hobby Lobby. The room is free. They advertise my classes on their web site. I also created a board for the front entrance showing cards with a handout they can take. Classes are the first and third Wednesday of every month. I do a morning (9:39 to noon) and 1:00 to 3:30).  They have to sign up and pay me by the Wednesday a week before class.  I am currently charging $15 for 4 cards. Starting in January I’m going to charge $15 for 3 cards.

My library wouldn’t let me charge either!!!  Try a local Starbucks, that’s where I hold a monthly class.  Look for a Senior center, I use to hold classes here but then they wanted me to carry business liability insurance, and this was too expensive.

Good luck!

In reply to this post by Holley Smith

One advantage of living in a small mountain community is that I AM able to use our little local library for classes and have since 2004.  I only charge for supplies plus a little extra:  $3 for two fairly simple cards.  I donate $1 to the library for each attendee and keep the $2 per participant for myself.  I’ve been doing this since 2004.  Around 8 years ago our library was ‘surplussed’ (aka dumped) by the county library system but my class just rolled right on into the new volunteer run library.  I have anywhere from 4-10 participants per month (3rd Thursday of the month), many of whom have been coming since 2004!  I don’t make money but I have gained a few loyal customers.  I think I’m just fortunate that the librarian supported me in 2004—it was actually her idea to try it out.  And now…….14 years later it’s still going strong.

We can not charge either, but I still do the class for them.  It has been a good way to funnel in new customers.  The publicity that I receive is much cheaper than a newspaper ad and reaches those that are interested.  By the way, they do not object to me taking orders as long as money is not exchanged at the time of the class.  After class is fine.

Thank you ladies for sharing your experiences. Seems like there's not a set standard......
Beverly Derringer, do you get to use Stampin' Up! products?

Years ago Michael's actually reached out to me, the lady found me through my DBWS. I took an online class for scrapbooking, I got a certification on scrapbooking and design theory. I interviewed and was hired. At the last moment I was informed that I couldn't use Stampin' Up! products, it had to be supplies and products that they carried in the store! I called Demo Support and they told me it went against their rules, it was a conflict of interest....course that was a very long time ago......

 Just wondering if your experience is different or what the rules are? I would love to do classes at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's or Michael's etc....

Thanks for any information!

I should also say I had no luck at Michaels or JoAnns here. They wanted me to use product from the store.

Hello,

 

I have been holding classes at one our local libraries for over seven years.  I hold one class two times a month and the ladies make from 2-3 cards and each participant pays $5.  I hold another class once a month and the ladies make from 3-4 cards and they pay $7.  I have never had a problem with the library about charging to cover the cost of my materials.  I believe this situation is the same with our other local libraries.

RE: SU!: Library

Denise Foor

Every locality is different.  Some public libraries in different counties/states will allow you to charge and others will not (even to cover supplies).  This has been my experience living in various states.  There may be other places you can use, like a local coffee shop, rec center, senior center, college or some such venue.  Our local coffee shop doesn’t charge for use of their room because most participants buy something but I’m sure that varies, too.
