Regmi, a learned scholar, had deep interest in reading
books, journals and newspapers of different subjects
and collecting materials of archaeological significance.
His quest for knowledge induced him to collect books,
journals, newspapers and materials of archaeological
importance such as stone and metal sculpture of gods
and goddesses and other archaeological collections,
rare photos etc. and establish Dilliraman-Kalyani Regmi
Library and Museum in 1980 at his own residence.
In 1981 he made a will which states that his entire
property including the library and museum would be transferred
to the Ministry of Education of His Majesty's Government.
He wanted the library to remain open to the general
public for study and research.
In his lifetime, he established a Trust named "Dr.
Dilliraman Regmi Trust" in 2053 B.S. to develop
and preserve the library and museum, and became its
patron. He passed away on 14th Bhadra, 2058 B.S. (August
30, 2001). The Ministry of Education and Sports (MOES),
under an Order "Dilliraman-Kalyani Regmi Memorial
Library Development Board" issued on July 28, 2003
(2060, Shrawan 12) formed a 7- member Board to manage
and look after the Library and Museum. MOES has also
set up a separate fund as per the provision of the Order
to facilitate the smooth running of the library and
