Since our incorporation as a non-profit in 1982, the Friends of the Richmond Public Library has supported a wide variety of library programs. Whether storytime for kids or activities for teens and adults, the Library opens doors of opportunity. Through fund raising, the Friends help to supplement the Library’s budget from the City, which might not be able to meet all of the community’s needs.
Programs We Support
The Friends support both ongoing and special programs at all three branches and the bookmobile. Ongoing programs include:
