Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • I’ve had a lifelong love affair with libraries, and will forever be grateful, as a fan of literature and a professional writer, for the wide-reaching impact of hardworking, passionate librarians.

  • When I enter a library, I feel I’ve come home.

  • Libraries: cafeterias for food that feeds the mind.

    Louise Yelin, author

  • The contents of a library can take you further than your own imagination could begin to imagine. To open a book is to open your mind.

    Amberle Cianne, author

  • When you are growing up, there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully—the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equalizer.

    Keith Richards, musician
