Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • I cannot think of a day in my life when the library didn’t exert a potent attraction for me, offering a sense of the specialness of each individual’s curiosity and his or her quest to satisfy it.

  • Some of my earliest memories are of book readings and story nights at our local library. It’s where I first learned to love reading, and discovered how exciting it is to get lost in the pages of a really good book.

  • Libraries offer, for free, the wisdom of the ages—and sages—and, simply put, there’s something for everyone inside.

    Laura Bush, First Lady of the United States

  • I’ve had a lifelong love affair with libraries, and will forever be grateful, as a fan of literature and a professional writer, for the wide-reaching impact of hardworking, passionate librarians.

  • When I got my library card, that’s when my life began.
