Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • That perfect tranquility of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library.”

    Aphra Behn, 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

  • I cannot think of a day in my life when the library didn’t exert a potent attraction for me, offering a sense of the specialness of each individual’s curiosity and his or her quest to satisfy it.

    Scott Turow, lawyer & author

  • Libraries are more important today than when I was a kid.

    John Grisham, Virginia author

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

    Henry Ward Beecher, author
