Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • Libraries are a pillar of liberty; they equalize and transform.

    Matthew Vossler

  • Libraries: cafeterias for food that feeds the mind.

    Louise Yelin, author

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

    Studs Terkel, broadcaster & historian

  • 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

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