Montana State Library Reporting

During the fall the State Library will ask you to submit your statistics for the fiscal year. The statistics cover things like library usage, revenue, expenditures, and technology in the library. This information is then sent to the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) which is a federal agency that oversees libraries. They send money to each state in the United States and in order to make a case for continuing to receive the funding IMLS requests that each state collect these statistics from public libraries. This information is used to educate the public and government officials about libraries as well as to develop policy for libraries.
