Rockland Library screens ‘Won't You be My Neighbor?’
ROCKLAND — The Rockland Public Library presents a documentary screening of the 2018 film Won't You be My Neighbor? followed by a short discussion, Thursday, Nov. 29, at 6:30 p.m.
The film is rated PG-13 and has a run time of 1 hr 34 min.
For over 30 years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer, was beamed daily into homes across America.
In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life's weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion.
“There hadn't been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn't been since,” said a Rockland Public Library news release.
After the screening, Patty King will lead a short discussion about the film.
The film screening and discussion, sponsored by Friends of Rockland Public Library, will take place in the Community Room and is free and open to the public.
The Library is located at 80 Union Street.
