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

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

    Eleanor Brown, 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

  • Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.

    Lady Bird Johnson, First Lady of the United States

  • 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
