Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • 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

  • 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

  • Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest.

    Lady Bird Johnson, First Lady of the United States

  • 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

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

    Studs Terkel, broadcaster & historian
