Can you advice a Python library to query a lan subnet with SNMP and collect MAC addresses of nodes?

I think for your interest, if what you described is not a part of your 
software you are doing but only a specific task, you could use some 
network scanning tools like nmap to achieve your goals.

there is also a module called pysnmp and you can look into it to see if 
it meets your need.
