LeVar Burton Reads

Parents who remember fondly the days of "Reading Rainbow" can introduce the next generation to Star Trek legend LeVar Burton's story times, with the Twitter livestream of "LeVar Burton Reads." On Mondays, at noon, kids of all ages (perhaps over lunch) can tune in to the read-aloud expert, who has devoted decades of his career to fostering literacy. On Wednesdays at 6 p.m., Burton is offering a session for teens.
