The Levi Heywood Memorial Library Building is an historic library building at 28 Pearl Street in Gardner, Massachusetts. The 1.5 story Richardsonian Romanesque brick building was built in 1885 to design by Fuller & Delano. It was built to house Gardner's public library, which was named for Levi Heywood, grandson of one of Gardner's founders, and influential in the rise of the chair manufacturing industry that came to dominate Gardner's economy. The building now houses the local history museum.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979,[1] and included in the Gardner Uptown Historic District in 1999.[2]
