    The Lit Line (206-386-4656) isn't necessarily a newfangled idea, SPL librarian Robin Rousu told me. It's pretty old. Rousu has been a librarian with SPL for 15 years. She used to run the Dial-a-Story program where kids were encouraged to call a number to get a story read to them. That program was built around the idea of landlines. So, naturally, it's since faded from relevance. But, the infrastructure and the idea were perfect for the COVID-19 era.
