If your life has been feeling a little empty without LeVar Burton reading you a book, you're in luck. Reading Rainbow is back.

After relaunching as an app in 2012 and completing a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $5.4 million last year, Reading Rainbow launched Skybrary Wednesday, a new interactive digital library service.

Skybrary is set up as seven islands in the sky, each with its own unique theme, that house a variety of content with more added each week. This includes more than 500 animated books and more than 150 video field trips featuring Burton that lets viewers experience the Grand Canyon, the White House and Cirque du Soleil. And of course, you can also peruse Story Time videos with Burton and classic clips from the PBS series too.

New users get a free 14-day trial to Skybrary, which is intended for children ages 2 to 9. After that, subscriptions range from $9.99 per month to $49.99 per year. The platform can currently be accessed on a browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) or a tablet (iPad or Kindle Fire with Android coming soon).

The fact that Millennials the world over are still obsessed with Reading Rainbow and Burton proves that the Skybrary isn't just for kids to enjoy either. Whether the Reading Rainbow theme song is slowed down or covered by a Jimmy Fallon pretending to be Jim Morrison, we'll always be obsessed with it. And don't pretend that you wouldn't freak out the way Troy did on Community if you got to meet Burton in person too.

The next steps for the Skybrary include the release of a classroom version that includes lesson plans and resources for teachers, according to Fast Company. This will be offered to up to 7,500 classrooms for free.
