The Lawrence Public Library is a public library located in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

It is governed by a board of trustees consisting of seven members.

Main Library Building[edit]

The Main Library Building, at the corner of Lawrence and Haverhill Streets, was constructed in 1973. It was designed by the Cambridge, Massachusetts architectural firm of Henneberg & Henneberg and is considered a typical example of brutalist architecture.
