We're a Community College and have many reentry parents who may need to come
to the media center to watch an assigned video and occassionally have
children with them. In order to give the parent a little peace, we have
purchased a few children's videos with public performance rights (Weston
Woods, etc.) to keep the children occupied. Once in a while a parent will
bring their child with a video of their own. We're fortunate that we have
not yet encountered chidlren being dumped off by their parents (perhaps
because we're crammed into a little space in the library and don't yet have
our own facility), except for the rare case when elementary children have
the day off and their parent is a teacher and may have them watch A video
and then pick them back up.
