Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • 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

  • Everything you need for better future and success has already been written. And guess what? All you have to do is go to the library.

    Henri Frederic Amiel, philosopher

  • 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

  • When I got my library card, that’s when my life began.

    Rita Mae Brown, writer

  • A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.

    Andrew Carnegie, industrialist & philanthropist
