Friends of the Richmond Public Library

  • 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

  • A library is the home for the imagination.

    Lisa Scottoline, author

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

    Lady Bird Johnson, First Lady of the United States

  • 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

  • Libraries are more important today than when I was a kid.

    John Grisham, Virginia author
