Not in a public library, Bryan--as I read the restrictions "fair use" has be an actual school setting in a real classroom with a teacher and a teaching cirriculum. Public libraries do not fit that criteria.

unless the patron is charging a fee for attending these showings, isn't
their exhibition considered an educational "fair use"?
