If you use your collection for in-house viewing and MUST have public perf.
rights, then Weston Woods does indeed have wonderful children's films. But
be aware that you can also get may of their titles through B&T for a lot
less money (home viewing only). Several of their films are combined onto
one video - look under title Children's Circle. Their prices for public
perf. have come down a bit but in my mind, $60. to $125. for a 6 minute
film is pretty steep. Plus, no one is going to want to check out a 6 min.
film to entertain their kid on a Saturday afternoon. We have a few for
in-house and all 13 or 14 volumes of the Children's Circle series for
patron check-out.
