A library committee is encouraging people to make their voices heard.
Somerset County Council has released its questionnaire asking people about the libraries in their area.
The Government is reducing funding to local authorities, bringing additional cuts for library budgets by 2020, leading Somerset County Council to launch this public consultation.
The Friends Of Cheddar Library are asking people to complete the consultation document in the hope it will help them save their library in Union Street.
Highbridge Library, in Market Street, is also under threat of closure.

The drop-in session will be held at Cheddar Library on March 23 where representatives from the county council will be able to answer any questions and assist with the questionnaire.
The two libraries must either recruit volunteers to operate them or face closure and a mobile library service in its place.
