The Lambda Python runtime includes only the interpreter itself + the AWS SDK. If you need any library that you need to include in teh requirements.txt, you need to include it in the deployment package. The easiest way to do that is to use SAM. Use sam init to create the project, and later use sam build and sam deploy to deploy the application with all the dependencies.
