Looking for an Externally Hosted Image Slideshow for the Web

I need an image slideshow script for a website. Unfortunately, I'm extremely constrained by our dinosaur CMS.

I'd like an image slideshow on our home page to advertise upcoming events and new services. A JQuery carousel would be perfect - I'm not interested in Flash for accessibility reasons and our patrons' browsers are not ready for a CSS3/HTML5-only solution.
The slideshow offered by cincopa.com is perfect - the script is externally hosted and works beautifully on our site. However, our bandwidth needs are too high for the free version, and I'm reluctant to spend money on the pro version unless I know it's our only option, since we won't need the service for long - we'll be transitioning to Wordpress or Drupal next year.
So, are there any free externally hosted JQuery slideshow scripts out there, or does anyone have an alternate suggestion as to how I can accomplish this? I'm a librarian, not a programmer, so forgive me if I've overlooked something obvious.
