The Carnegie Library in Anaheim, California is a Carnegie Library building built in 1908. The Classical Revival style building was designed by John C. Austin, and opened in 1909.

It was a public library until 1963. During the 1970s it served as the personnel office for the City of Anaheim. It is now one of the buildings of the MUZEO, a museum of local culture, history and art.

The Anaheim Carnegie Library was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]

It is the only Carnegie library remaining in Orange County; others in Fullerton, Orange, Santa Ana, and Huntington Beach have not survived.[2]
