But I’m more in favour of a more standardized way of extracting the data from Koha such as creating an RSS feed for both what public lists there are and the contents of each list.

It shouldn’t be all that expensive and if there is some plugin in worpress to display the contents of an RSS feed on your site then you should be set.

+1 for that. 

It would be possible to handwrite the necessary code in javascript, but my guess is that there are at least a few Wordpress plugins for displaying JSON content that is worth having a look at first. 

(Cited from the Koha manual if this is the first encounter with JSON reports: A public report is accessible via a URL that looks like this: http://MYOPAC/cgi-bin/koha/svc/report?id=REPORTID)
