First Fridays

Richmond Public Library is proud to take part in First Fridays, a signature event in Richmond’s Arts District. Make the Main Library a stop on your culture crawl by joining us on First Fridays from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM. These events feature openings in each of our gallery spaces from a variety of local artists. We also host a monthly musical showcase featuring local musicians in partnership with Music One Stop Shop (MOSS).


RPL is also pleased to collaborate with Music One Stop Shop (MOSS) for a monthly showcase featuring local musicians. Start your month off with creativity and culture at the Main Library!


The Richmond Public Library is looking for artists and photographers to exhibit at the Main Library. Gallery space is offered free of charge to the artist with a suggested donation of 10% of any sales during the show. Apply today!
