Longleaf Consortium

The Longleaf Library Consortium is comprised of three public library systems in south‐central Mississippi.



The consortium was formed in August 2006 for the purpose of implementing quality circulation software while decreasing costs through shared financial resources and for the purpose of expanding the range of available library resources to the participating libraries’ patrons.

Seven counties with a combined population of 132,600 and a 3,854 square mile area delineate the Longleaf Library Consortium. Each of the three public library systems is governed by its own administrative board of trustees. There are thirteen branch libraries in the consortium. Patrons of each library may request books from any branch and may use their library card at any branch.
