Richmond Authors Collection

The Richmond Authors Collection is housed in the Davenport Special Collections Room of the Main Library, 101 E. Franklin Street. The Richmond Authors Collection represents the breadth and range of Richmond writers and includes the works of authors who have lived in Richmond (or the adjacent counties of Henrico, Chesterfield, Goochland and Hanover) for at least one year of their lives. The Collection provides an important link to Richmond's development, growth, heritage and culture as a community and a people.

Books in the Richmond Authors Collection are not available for circulation, and must be signed for and used under supervision in the Main Library only.

Currently, the Davenport Special Collections Room is only available by appointment.  Please call 804-646-7223 with questions about the materials in the Richmond Authors Collection.
