Department of the Interior, 

Bureau op Education, 
Washington, D. C, December 21, 1886. 
The Honorable 

The Secretary op the Interior : 
Sir : In 1876 there was published by this Office a report entitled "Public Libraries 
in the United States." This work contained a table of public libraries numbering 
300 volumes and upwards. There were 3,647 libraries mentioned in that liat. By the 
publication of that report a great stimulus was given to the subject of public libraries, 
and numerous additions have been made to the list from year to year. My predeces- 
sor, realizing that many changes had occurred in ten years, had prepared for his last 
Annual Report an entirely new table, containing the latest and briefest information. 
He obtained returns from 5,338 libraries, showing an increase of 1,691 public libraries 
in this country in ten years. Eetums were not received from a number, and the in- 
crease will probably be over 1,700. 

A constant demand is made on this Office for the list of public libraries in the United 
States. To avoid sending copies of the Annual Report containing this list, and in 
order that I may be able to supply such requests, I have deemed it best to ask your 
permission to have printed, in a separate pamphlet, those pages of the Annual Report 
which refer to this subject. 

Very respectfully, your obedient servant, 

N. H. R. DAWSON, 

Commisaioner. 
Pablication approved. 

L. Q, C. T.. AMATt, 

Secretary.
