Help Me Find This Fable About Cheetahs

Where can I find issues of 3-2-1 Contact magazine from the 1980's?

Is there a library or archive that might have issues of 3-2-1 Contact magazine from the 1980's? 3-2-1 Contact Magazine was a kids print magazine in the U.S. from the 1980's onward, related to the PBS show produced by the Children's Television Workshop. The best I've found from casual searches of Internet resources is a 138MB zip of scans, but this archive is too incomplete for my purposes. Is there a library or archive that would have something like this? Or were magazines not considered archive-worthy, and personal collections (eBay, magazine forums) are my only hope? [more inside]

Horses for Juniors?

A friend is trying to track down a magazine whose title she recalls as Horses for Juniors. "It was a horse magazine for kids, and they had articles and stuff, and also you could submit drawings of your favorite horse and they'd publish the best of the bunch." This would have been in California circa 1981. Any leads on what it might have been and/or how to find copies?
