The Taylor Memorial Library, also known as Taylor Library or Old Library, is a historic former library building at 5 Broad Street in Milford, Connecticut. Built in 1894, it is a Richardsonian Romanesque building designed by Joseph W. Northrop. It follows, but departs from, H. H. Richardson's design of the Crane Memorial Library in Massachusetts.[2] It now houses the offices of the Milford Chamber of Commerce.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1][2]
