How Do I Share Itunes Library Across User Profiles?

On main, admin profilein iTunes I set library/music to be stored in the Public Music folder. Went into another User profile and set preferences to be the same in iTunes under that profile, but when I open iTunes the music isn't in it. Do I have to "add music" in iTunes in every user profile?

Also, I only want other users to be able to play music, and "remove" songs from iTunes, but not delete them from the library.
