B.F. Jones Memorial Library

The B.F. Jones Memorial Library is a historic library in the City of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania.

The library was built in 1928 with money donated by Mrs. Elisabeth Horne, daughter of steel magnate and Jones and Laughlin Steel Company founder Benjamin Franklin Jones. Mrs. Horne purchased ten parcels of land and engaged the services of the architectural firm of Bartholomew & Smith of Pittsburgh. She worked closely with architect Brandon Smith, especially in the selection of the interior/exterior materials, lighting and landscaping. The B.F. Jones Memorial Library opened to the public on February 1, 1929.

In 1978, the library was added to the National Register of Historic Places for its architecture and for its association with Jones in the development of Aliquippa.
