I think the following may give you what you want:

The Retrieve Library Description (QLIRLIBD) API lets you retrieve attributes for a specific library.

It returns a number of values, which you can select:


The following table lists the valid key identifiers that can be
specified in the attributes to retrieve parameter. See the
“Field Descriptions” for the descriptions of the valid key

Key ID Type Field
1 CHAR(1) Type of library
3 CHAR(10) Create authority
4 CHAR(10) Create object auditing
5 CHAR(50) Text description
6 CHAR(12) Library size information
7 BINARY(4) Number of objects in library

Calling this for each item in a list of library objects could get the info you need.
