The David S. Walker Library (also known[when?] as The University[which?] Library) is a historic library in Tallahassee, Florida named for Governor David S. Walker, who served from 1865 through 1868. For many years it housed Tallahassee's (whites-only) public library. It is located 209 East Park Avenue. On June 22, 1976, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

In 2018, it has no book collection nor has for many years, nor has it any library function, since the founding of the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library in the 1950s.

The library serves as the meeting place for the board of Springtime Tallahassee.
