Libraries Southwest (LSW) exists to promote and enhance libraries and their services in Southwest Louisiana.

  • A variety of services are offered through this Consortium. View Beauregard Parish's Information Portal for additional details.  
  • The reciprocal borrowers' agreement allows LSW cardholders from any of the member libraries to use the services in any other member library locations. This excludes cardholders from Evangeline Parish and St. Landry Parish.
  • Residents of Allen Parish, Beauregard Parish, Calcasieu Parish, Cameron Parish, Evangeline Parish, Jefferson Davis Parish, Rapides Parish, South St. Landry Community, and Vernon Parish are eligible for an LSW card, but the reciprocal borrower's agreement may not apply. These parishes include Evangeline Parish and St. Landry Parish.
  • ALWAYS check with your home parish library for eligibility requirements.
  • LSW cardholders share a collection of audiobooks and eBooks. The Rapides Parish Library is the exception.
