[Videolib] closed captioning questioning

Just curious as to how any library can afford to close caption films on
their own. We get requests for permission from time to time and have no
objection but we also have no script. Is it not rather expensive to
transcribe & caption a feature film ? I know there are some places that
give grants for this sort of thing but as far as we know, no one has ever
done this for one of our films. I understand that libraries WANT to get
things CC but it does not seem that practical to me so how do guys handle
