The Melrose Public Library is a historic library at 69 W. Emerson Street in Melrose, Massachusetts. The original T-shaped building was built in 1904, and is a two story Colonial Revival structure faced in brick with limestone trim. It was built with funds contributed by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie to a design by Lynn architect Penn Varney, and features stained glass windows by Wilbur H. Burnham. A modern single story addition was added in 1963 to the rear and left side of the building.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
