1. Tomes & Talismans – This is pretty amazing. Searching for old PBS Kid’s Shows, I discovered that Mississippi Public Broadcasting created a sci-fi series to teach children about Library Science.
The program was called Tomes & Talismans, and the premise was that humans were evacuating Earth because of an attack by the Wiper alien race. The Wipers wanted to disrupt communication and data technology, and a special task force of humans were preparing a library of all human knowledge. Underground, of course. What an insanely awesome way to teach kids Library Science! You can see the first episode for yourself:
