Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • Library/ Here is where people/ One frequently finds/ Lower their voices/ And raise their mind.

    Richard Armour, poet

  • There are many ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.

    Jacqueline Kennedy, First Lady of the United States

  • Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.

    Laura Bush, First Lady of the United States

  • The public library is one of the great strongholds of democracy. Who doesn’t love a library? It is a place you can go in any town and discover the world.

    Pat MacEnulty, author

  • 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
