PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A struggling public library in Rhode Island is getting help from actor Alec Baldwin — again.
Officials at the Adams Memorial Library in Central Falls say Baldwin will headline a fundraiser June 7 at Fete in Providence. Attendees can enter a raffle for a chance to read dialogue on stage with Baldwin.
Central Falls has been in the news for its financial problems. The city in 2011 became the first in Rhode Island to declare municipal bankruptcy and the library closed for a month as a result. The city emerged from bankruptcy in 2012.
Baldwin read about the city's woes and donated $10,000 to the library in 2011 and another $5,000 in 2012. He also gave $2,500 to two local school chess teams last year.
