The objective of the LibriVox project is to make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet. LibriVox is a totally open source, free content, public domain project.
Volunteers record chapters of books, and then release the audio files back onto the net (podcast and catalog). These stories can be downloaded on to an iPod or other mp3 player, burned on to a CD, and easily integrated into the curriculum.
The catalog of books is constantly growing and includes audio books for both adults and children. The LibriVox catalog contains many classic children's stories, including: Alice in Wonderland, Great Big Treasury of Beatrix Potter, and Jack London's Call of the Wild.
LibriVox is a great way to combine kid's love of mobile technology with classic literature. But more importantly the LibriVox project provides teachers and students with a virtual library of literature they may not otherwise have access to at their own schools or communities.
