The Fogg Library is a historic library building at 1 Columbian Street in Weymouth, Massachusetts. Built in 1897 to a design by Cutting, Carleton & Cutting, the Renaissance Revival stone building serves as a branch of the Weymouth Public Library. It was a gift of local businessman John S. Fogg. It has a steeply pitched gable roof with stepped ends in the Dutch Revival style, and a projecting gable section which houses the entry under a round-arched loggia.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.[1]
