Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.

    Laura Bush, First Lady of the United States

  • The library is the temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars in history.

    Carl T. Rowan, journalist & author

  • All you need in life is truth and beauty and you can find both at the Public Library.

    Studs Terkel, broadcaster & historian

  • Libraries showed me the world beyond my limited horizons.

    Sarah Bracey White, author

  • 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.

    Scott Turow, lawyer & author
