Abstract: This study entitled “Users’ Status and Potential Users of Dilliraman Kalyani Regmi Memorial Library” has been selected to find out the overall status of users in DKRML. Dilliraman Library was privately owned and transformed into public library since 2037 B.S. DKRML has passed four decades in the library services. But the major problem of DKRML is that only less number of users are using library. This study also concerns to know the information needs of the users, available sources and services of the library and it also identifies such variables which are responsible to attract more numbers of potential users in a library. The significance of this study is to provide users’ related information about DKRML. For this study, 25 related national, international articles, books, unpublished thesis were reviewed. This study was divided into 2 parts. To find out the users’ status of DKRML, observation, questionnaire and interview had done with the available users, staffs and board members of DKRML. And to find out the potential users of DKRML, questionnaires were prepared and collected from all the available respondents of Central Department of History and Central Department of Political Science of T.U. Altogether, 55 individuals had participated during the data collection. Collected data had analyzed through both qualitative and quantitative methods. More youth visitor found in DKRML as compared other age group of users. Library resources, internet service & friendly behavior of library staffs attract library users in the library. But due to its old physical infrastructure, users are facing space problem. DKRML consist relatable resources for potential users, but potential users are unknown about DKRML due to less publicity. New library building should build as soon as possible to reduce space problem. The number of skilled staffs should add to increase more library services like lending service. The way of publicity needs to be changed per circumstances and demand of time to attract more number of potential users in the library. Keywords: Library, Public libraries, User study
