Question Hide a book from Content Server?

I'd like to put my Content Server up on my home network so my family can get to my books and download them to their various devices. However, certain books aren't appropriate for my kids (too violent, too much R-rated [or higher] activity, and so on), so I'd like to make those books *not* available.

Is there a way to hide certain books from the Content Server? I'm happy to give them a certain tag or whatever it takes.

The virtual library feature would be the way to go.

Go for the Virtual Library to Shop

Preferences: sharing over the net: <select>
Obviously, you have to have one predefined before you get here

For more fun, you can also launch several instances of the content server, independent of the Calibre GUI. So you can run your full library on http://your-hostname:8080 (with password), your kids' library on http://your-hostname:8081 (with no password)... without having to run the full Calibre GUI.

I think someone here posted the Windows way to do that a while ago.
