Darlington residents are being asked for their views on what they want from their local library.
The findings will form a key part of the Labour-controlled authority's review of the service as it faces a £22m reduction in spending.
Copies of the survey can be found on the council's website, and at Crown Street and Cockerton Libraries. It must be completed by 24 January.
Questions include which libraries are used, and how often.
At two recent public consultation events, attended by hundreds of people, concern was expressed over plans to reduce services, as well as cutting the £1m annual subsidy to the town's 103-year-old Civic Theatre.
