Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • Libraries are a pillar of liberty; they equalize and transform.

    Matthew Vossler

  • Libraries showed me the world beyond my limited horizons.

    Sarah Bracey White, author

  • 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

  • A library is not simply a repository of books, it is the symbol and center of our culture—a door and a window for those who might not otherwise have such doors and windows.

    Amy Tan, 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
