The Library Hall of Fame is a list of 40 leaders of the modern library movement that appeared in the March 15, 1951 issue of Library Journal.[1] That issue of Library Journal celebrated the 75th anniversary of the American Library Association.

All of the members of the Library Hall of Fame were deceased when Library Journal printed the list.
