Dwight T. Parker Public Library is a public library in Fennimore, Wisconsin. The building was constructed in 1923 to house the city's library, which had previously been based in a Methodist church and the Old Fennimore House. Dwight T. Parker, a local banker, funded the library. The architectural firm Claude & Starck designed the structure in a mixture of the Mediterranean Revival and neoclassical styles; the brick building features terra cotta ornamentation and a tile roof.[2]

The library was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 10, 1983.[1]
