I want my kids to have their own accounts, but as they are all linked to the same library, would they need their own library to have their own account? Don't want 4 versions of iTunes on my computer.

    No. Each Apple ID and account needs a separate library. To accomplish this on one computer you must set up separate user accounts each of which will have its own iTunes Library (but only one version of iTunes.) If that's not satisfactory then buy a computer for each of your kids.
