The study dealt with three selected district (public) libraries which covered a large community of Upper Assam. It was carried out to investigate various extension services like reading circles, exhibitions, mobile library, book display, adult education programme, special talks, etc. which were performed by different public libraries of Upper Assam. The main focus of the study was to measure the awareness level about extension services among the users’ community of the region. It also emphasized the special and social awareness programmes conducted by the libraries. It highlighted different problems faced by the libraries while delivering these extension services in real sense. The findings showed that most of the identified extension services had not been practicing in the three district libraries and also the awareness level was very pathetic among the community. Henceforth, some strategic planning should be deployed to overcome these challenges.
