We were pleased to launch our new website in 2015. By now we hope that all of you have checked it out. The address is: http://www.richmondlibraryfriends.org.

Thank you to all of our members, donors of funds and books, book purchasers and volunteers!

We are also grateful to the City of Richmond employees who contribute to our efforts each year.
