Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • All you need in life is truth and beauty and you can find both at the Public Library.

    Studs Terkel, broadcaster & historian

  • 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

  • Some of my earliest memories are of book readings and story nights at our local library. It’s where I first learned to love reading, and discovered how exciting it is to get lost in the pages of a really good book.

    Erin Duffy, author

  • Libraries are absolutely at the center of my life. Since I couldn’t afford to go to college, I attended the library three or four days a week from the age of eighteen on, and graduated from the library when I was twenty-eight.

    Ray Bradbury, author

  • If you want to find your happy place, just go to the library.
