Reading Rainbow: Stay Away from the Junkyard! (30 min., ages 5 and up)
LeVar Burton introduces viewers to an artist who collects what some people consider “junk” and transforms it into fun and fascinating artwork. As LeVar holds his own garage sale, it becomes apparent that what one person sees as junk might be another person’s treasure.

These films are presented by the Robert J. O’Donnell Film Series Endowment Fund.
