Jervis Public Library is a historic library building located in Rome in Oneida County, New York. It was built in 1858 as the residence of John B. Jervis (1795–1885). The original house is a rectangular, 2 12-story brick structure with a slate-covered gable roof and cupola. The facade features a 2-story portico supported by four massive Doric order brick columns. A 2-story library extension was added in 1926 and in 1967 a modern library facility was added. Also on the property is a 2-story carriage house built about 1860.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
