Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • The library is the temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars in history.

    Carl T. Rowan, journalist & author

  • Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.

    Ray Bradbury, author

  • Come, and take choice of all my library, and so beguile thy sorrow.

    William Shakespeare (1564-1616), playwright

  • Libraries are the hearts of our communities.

    Jennifer R. Hubbard, 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
