Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • My Alma mater was books, a good library… I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.

    Malcolm X, human rights activist

  • 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

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

    Barbara Tuchman, historian & author

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

    Eleanor Brown, author

  • When you are growing up, there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully—the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equalizer.

    Keith Richards, musician
