The Reading Municipal Building is a historic building at 49 Pleasant Street in Reading, Massachusetts. Built in 1885, this two story brick building was the town's first municipal structure, housing the town offices, jail, and fire station. In 1918 all functions except fire services moved out of the building.[2] It now serves as Reading's Pleasant Street Senior Center.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
