Jefferson Branch Library is a branch library of the Los Angeles Public Library in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. It was built in 1923 based on a Spanish Colonial Revival design by architect C.E. Noerenberg.

In 1987, the Jefferson Branch and several other branch libraries in Los Angeles were added to the National Register of Historic Places as part of a thematic group submission.[2] The application noted that the branch libraries had been constructed in a variety of period revival styles to house the initial branch library system of the City of Los Angeles.
