Which preposition is correct:

a. I am at the library.
b. I am in the library.

Thanks.

In British English you could use either if you were actually inside the building.

If you were standing outside you would have to use 'at'.
In the U.S. we mostly say 'at the library' but I agree with nona that either would work. If you want to stress the fact that you are actually inside the building, you would say 'I am inside the library.'

Okay! Thanks! I will feel free to use either now, finally! :-)
In this sentence " I work in ABC Company", when ABC is a proper noun, are both "in" and "at" correct? What is the difference? Thank you very much.

I wouldn't say 'I work in ABC Company", I would either say "I work at..." or I work for..."

What do the others think?

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
You can also use "with".
Yes, but you would say "I am with ABC" not "I work with ABC."

I mean you could say "I work with ABC" but then it necessarily means you acatully are with "XYZ" but you interface with "ABC" during the course of your work.

Just wanted to clarify....
