IMLS provides a variety of grant programs to assist the Nation’s museums and libraries in improving their operations and enhancing their services to the public. IMLS is responsible for identifying national needs for and trends in museum, library, and information services; measuring and reporting on the impact and effectiveness of museum, library and information services throughout the United States, including programs conducted with funds made available by IMLS; identifying and disseminating information on the best practices of such programs; and developing plans to improve museum, library, and information services of the United States and strengthen national, State, local, regional, and international VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:36 Aug 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 communications and cooperative networks (20 U.S.C. Chapter 72, 20 U.S.C. 9108). II. Current Actions Pursuant to Public Law 107–279, this Public Libraries Survey collects annual descriptive data on the universe of public libraries in the United States and the Outlying Areas. Information such as public service hours per year, circulation of library books, number of librarians, population of legal service area, expenditures for library collection, programs for children and young adults, staff salary data, and access to technology, etc., would be collected. The Public Libraries Survey has been conducted by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the clearance number 3137–0074, which expires December 31, 2016. Agency: Institute of Museum and Library Services. Title: Public Libraries Survey, 2016– 2018. OMB Number: 3137–0074. Agency Number: 3137. Affected Public: State and local governments, State library agencies, and public libraries. Number of Respondents: 56. Note: 56 is the number of State Library Administrative Agencies (SLAAs) that are responsible for the collection of this information and for reporting it to IMLS. In gathering this information, the SLAAs will request that their sub-entities (i.e., public libraries in their respective States and Outlying Areas) provide information to the respective SLAA. As the number of sub-entities and questions varies from SLAA to SLAA, it is difficult to assess the exact number of burden hours and costs. Frequency: Annually. Burden hours per respondent: 91.32. Total burden hours: 5,113.92. Total Annualized capital/startup costs: n/a. Total Annual Costs: $142,882.92. Dated: August 11, 2016. Kim A.
