The Canton Public Library is a historic Carnegie library building in Canton, Ohio, United States. It was designed by Guy Tilden as the winning entry in a Carnegie library design competition. The library was built in 1903. It was said in 1973 to be "'one of Tilden's designs most admired by present-day architects'"[2] The library moved to another building in 1978, and the original building now houses law offices.

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