Darwen Library is a Carnegie library in Darwen, Lancashire, England. It opened in 1908 and is located on Knott Street.
The library was officially opened in May 1908 by Andrew Carnegie, who had donated £8000 to build it. It has continued to provide book-lending services to members of the local community.
Centenary of library
As part of the library's centenary celebrations in 2008, the library ran a number of events throughout May. In April 2008, local brewers Fallons Exquisite Ales announced they had created a new beer and were dedicating it to the library.
