Actress Viola Davis arrives at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' 3rd Annual Governors Awards at the Hollywood & Highland Grand Ballroom on Nov. 12, 2011 in Los Angeles

*The public library in Central Falls that was temporarily closed because of the city’s dire finances is expanding its hours again after receiving a donation from actress Viola Davis and a state grant, reports the AP.

The Adams Memorial Library said Monday that it got a $1,000 check from Davis, who grew

up in Central Falls. The library also received a $3,500 grant with the help of state Sen. Elizabeth Crowley. Actor Alec Baldwin donated $10,000 to the library last month.

The library has raised $61,000 since it was shuttered in July ahead of the city’s bankruptcy filing. It reopened part-time with the help of volunteers. Beginning Dec. 1, it will be open six days a week.
