The Ernie Pyle House / Library is a historic site and a biographical museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is most significant for being the former home of Ernie Pyle, a famed war correspondent. It is also a branch of the Albuquerque/Brenalillo County Library System.

The Ernie Pyle House / Library traces its roots back to 1940 when it was built for Pyle and his wife, Jerry. He worked overseas from military theaters and focused his craft on the experiences of front-line infantry soldiers. He received the Pulitzer Prize in 1945.

When the Pyles died in the 1940s, the state acquired the house in 1948 and made it the first branch library of the city. It still serves as such today, with additional Pyle memorabilia. The house was also designated as a US National Historic Landmark in 2006.
