John Harvard Library is a public lending library on Borough High Street in Southwark, London. The Southwark Local History Library is adjacent.

The library bears the name of Southwark clergyman John Harvard (1607–1638), who emigrated to Massachusetts and bequeathed most of his estate, including hundreds of books, to the college now known as Harvard University.
