Audio Copyright Question

If you're tired of contemplating the intricacies of video public performance
rights, I have something different for you to ponder . . . public
performance of audio recordings in the library. Specifically, is it OK to
play an audio recording as part of a children's storytime program? Or does
a library need to maintain BMI and ASCAP licenses to be safe.
I'd appreciate any clarification on this subject.
Thanks,
