CENTRAL FALLS, RI- Alec Baldwin was handed the key to the city of Central Falls Saturday outside of the Adams Memorial Library.

Baldwin donated $1,000 dollars to the library back in 2011 after learning it was shutting down. He gave another $5,000 the following year.

"Whether its tablets or computers or so forth, me, I actually like to carry a book around every now and then. Libraries are still important. Libraries are still very important in the life of a community. So it was my great pleasure," said Baldwin.

This is the first key awarded to someone by Central Falls mayor, James Diossa.

Baldwin also hosted a VIP reception at the library.
