Note: this is an edit of a previous posting. The intent of the experiment was to find out if the library could sustain the video production of lots of local stories. The short answer: no, it's a little pricey for libraries. But the value of the project is high, and I love the model as a way to gather and share local stories. For us, we think the podcast version will be more do-able.
