The Richmond Public Library System consists of a main library with eight additional branches located throughout the City to serve all of its citizens.
Inform, Enrich, Empower
The mission of the Richmond Public Library is to inform, enrich, and empower Richmond's residents: to enrich lives and expand opportunities for all citizens by promoting reading and the active use of cultural, intellectual, and information resources through a dedication to excellence and professional service.
In addition to books, e-books, recorded books and DVD's, all Library locations offer programs and classes, meeting room use, wireless Internet access, and public use PCs. Fax service is available at each library for a fee to send faxes (not receive); notary service is available at each library (please call to make sure the registered notary is available).
The Library's dedicated staff is always ready to assist you in making use of all library resources.
