Hello and thanks for reading this.
I know how to create a new library, but I need one, containing only the songs I have in one of my playlists in my current library.
Any thoughts on how to?
Thanks in advance.

At a minimum, you should be able to go to the playlist in iTunes, highlight all the songs in the playlist, then drag those songs to some location on your hard drive in the finder.

Then create a new library as you normally would. Then add the songs to the new library in iTunes using the location you dragged those songs to above.
