The Biblioteca centrale della Regione Siciliana is an historic library in Palermo, Sicily. It was founded in 1782 on the orders of Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies and the instigation of Gabriele Lancillotto Castello, prince of Torremuza. It became a state library in 1860 and remained a national library until being transferred to the Regione Siciliana in 1977.
It is housed in the former Jesuit Collegio Massimo and the adjoining baroque former church of Santa Maria della Grotta.
