Podcasting children’s story times?

Metapodcasting; by Teresa Walls at ALSC website; accessed May 8, 2008.

Is it possible to use podcasting to share children’s stories?  Because of copyright issues, reading stories for download would infringe on author’s rights. So issues would include creating original content.  But possible current uses could include recording book club discussions to post online to share with family members or with club members who couldn’t attend a discussion.  Would podcasts be downloaded and listened to?  Surveys or allowing comments on the podcasting pages would be ways to track usage.

I’ve considered using podcasts to promote library programs or, better yet, as information literacy tutorials (how to do an advance web search, copyright infringement & use of information, and where to find things in the library).
