You should certainly install LMS 7.9. It offers support for "virtual
libraries" (eg. filtered views) and other slightly more advanced browse
modes than previous versions. It's not straightforward to set up, but
it's definitely possible. I eg. have a library "Kids" and one "No kids".
The latter is what I'm using. The former is linked to the main menu as
its own "Kids" menu, from which they can select their favorites easily.
Of if it's messy enough to not even warrant the scan, you can browse and
play content from sources outside your main music folder, without adding
them to the database (browse by folder only).
