Innerpeffray Library was the first lending library in Scotlandmarker. It is located in the hamlet of Innerpeffray, by the River Earnmarker in Perth and Kinross, southeast of Crieffmarker.

The library was founded by David Drummond, 3rd Lord Madertie (died 1692), before 1680, when he made 400 of his family books available to the public. The library was originally located in the loft of St Mary's Chapel, and moved into a purpose-built library house in 1762. This was built by Robert Hay Drummond (1711-1776), Archbishop of York, and a descendent of Lord Madertie, who also donated his book collection on his death. The library ceased lending in 1968, but remains open to the public several days a week, except for November to February.
