Libraries Southwest exists to promote and enhance libraries and library services in Southwest Louisiana.


  • Reciprocal borrower's agreement allowing LSW card holders to use the services of any participating public library.
  • Regional special collection development encouraging each member library to develop one or more special interest collections. This allows residents of the region to have access to a larger collection of material than any one library system can afford to purchase.
    Currently, the list of special collections include:
    • Allen Parish Library - Tourism
    • Beauregard Parish Library - Resources For Grant Writing
    • Calcasieu Parish Library - Genealogy
    • Frazier Memorial Library - Archival collection of historical documents reflecting the history, growth, and development of McNeese, Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana.
    • Vernon Parish Library - Federal and State Documents. Strong Legal Collection.
  • Continuing Education Workshops for Staff Development
  • Trustee Workshops
  • Annual Author's Dinner
  • A mailing list for LSW related topics and discussion. To subscribe visit this page for instructions.
