Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • I love libraries! They opened the world to me as a child and continue to do so now. Librarians are fantastic, hardworking people who go out of their way.

    June Shaw, Author

  • Books are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind—humanity in print.

    Barbara Tuchman, historian & author

  • A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life.

    Henry Ward Beecher, author

  • When I enter a library, I feel I’ve come home.

    Barbara Wright, 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
