Telemegaphone for libraries

I'm ashamed to say it, but it was not until a friend in another country alerted me to it that I became aware of this terrific Telemegaphone service, available right here in my very own Norway (but developed by a couple of Svedes from Malmø)!  Obviously, this service can be put to good use by libraries in any number of ways. For example, many libraries compile periodic lists of new acquisitions; a no brainer would be to call the Telemegaphone service and read the list, which would then be broadcast through the valley. The good people of  Dale, whether milking, ploughing, tooling with the tractor, or just relaxing in a field, would be pleasantly alerted to new titles available at the local library. Brilliant!
