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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Funding libraries should be our number one national priority.

    Karin Slaughter, author
