Friends of the Richmond Public Library

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

    Carl T. Rowan, journalist & author

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

    Eleanor Brown, 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

  • 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 public library is one of the great strongholds of democracy. Who doesn’t love a library? It is a place you can go in any town and discover the world.

    Pat MacEnulty, author
