The objective of the study is to evaluate library and information service delivery in three states houses of assembly in southwestern part of Nigeria. A descriptive survey design was adopted with a study population of 84 legislators and 9 library staff from three state houses of assembly in Ondo, Osun and Oyo states. Questionnaire was the main research instrument used for data collection. Data was analysed using frequency distribution and percentages run on SPSS. The study revealed that books/monographs and relevant periodicals 57(86.3%), reference materials 65(98%) and government publications 56(84%) were readily available to the legislators. Also, current awareness services 58(87.9%), reference services 46(69.7%) and selective dissemination 55(83.4%) among others were the services specially delivered to the legislators by the parliamentary library. The legislators used library for research and consultation. Conversely, non availability of current books 39(59.1%) was highlighted. The study recommends the introduction of services like document delivery, selective dissemination of information, current awareness services and others that will specifically address the needs of the legislators.
