MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The Friends of the Mamaroneck Library are hosting a special screening of a 20-minute short film created by the Project Rebirth organization.
The screening will take place on Sunday, Oct. 18, from 2-4 p.m., in the community room at the library.
The film is about Charles Cook, a retired railroad conductor, who walked from Harlem to Ground Zero on 9/11, and dedicated himself to assisting in any way he could at the site. Mr. Cook -- CC to his friends -- will be a special guest at this showing, and speak about how this experience transformed his life and convinced him to dedicate his future to helping those in need during times of disaster.
Former Mamaroneck Library Board President and local resident, Helen Rafferty, is the managing director of Project Rebirth. She will introduce both the film, and Cook.
The program will begin at 2 p.m. with refreshments, followed by the introduction to the showing of the film at 2.30 p.m.
The Friends request early attendance from all patrons so the film may be shown without interruption.
A post-film dialog involving the audience with both Rafferty and Cook will be held.
The Mamaroneck Public Library is at 136 Prospect Ave. Call (914) 698-1250 or go to mamaronecklibrary.org.
