Southwest Florida Library Network (SWFLN)
Helping libraries provide better, faster service.
The Southwest Florida Library Network (SWFLN) is one of the five regional groups of multi-type libraries (MLCs) in the State of Florida. SWFLIN is a non-profit 501(c)3 multi-type library cooperative. SWFLN serves the counties of Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Hendry, Lee, and Monroe.
What are Multi-type Library Cooperatives (MLCs)?
MLCs deliver access to knowledge and information resources throughout Florida libraries.
MLCs provide cost effective library staff training, top quality professional development and continuing education along with an international sharing system of resources.
MLCs monitor current library developments in service and evolving technologies for all libraries.
MLCs share materials through Inter Library loan so Florida citizens have access to whatever information they need.

When you visit one of the libraries listed below, you will be eligible to receive a library-borrowing card for that library.
A SWFLN reciprocal borrowing sticker on your library card gives you borrowing privileges at these participating SWFLN libraries:
