The 21st Century Library

From clay tablets to printed books to eBooks—the media of thought are ever-changing. Yet the essential function of libraries remains the same: to broaden the opportunities that come with knowledge.

The Richmond Public Library Foundation is committed to ensuring those opportunities continue to grow. We invest in the resources required by a 21st century library serving a diverse urban community—public computers, audiobooks, career resources, college databases, and more. Our purchase of an agile book van is just the latest example of our commitment to broadening opportunities for all.

Please take a few minutes to learn more about who we are and what we do. Then consider contributing to our community’s future through a one-time gift, recurrent donations, or planned giving.
