Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • There is no problem a library card can’t solve.

    Eleanor Brown, author

  • Libraries are absolutely at the center of my life. Since I couldn’t afford to go to college, I attended the library three or four days a week from the age of eighteen on, and graduated from the library when I was twenty-eight.

    Ray Bradbury, author

  • 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

  • A library is more than a brick and mortar building filled with delicious books. It is also a community of people who live to invest in our youth, who read for knowledge and fun, and who are ready to include anyone who walks through the door.

    Kate L. McGarry, author

  • There are many ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.

    Jacqueline Kennedy, First Lady of the United States
