Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life.

    Henry Ward Beecher, author

  • A library is not simply a repository of books, it is the symbol and center of our culture—a door and a window for those who might not otherwise have such doors and windows.

    Amy Tan, 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

  • Funding libraries should be our number one national priority.

    Karin Slaughter, 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
