Lactobacillus salivarius KLW001, a species of lactic acid bacteria (LAB), was isolated from a weaning piglet in a swine farm, South Korea, to develop an antimicrobial probiotic strain for piglets. Herein, we report the draft genome sequence of the strain. The genome contains 2,326,706 bp with a G+C content of 33.0% in 166 contigs (${\geq}500bp$). From the genome, we found out 4 genes related to antibiotic resistance, 36 genes for phages, 3 genes for bile hydrolysis, and 27 CRISPR spacers.
