    Default Questions

    when you want to ask a librarian if the library is closed tomorrow, what am I supposed to say?

    "Is this library closing tomorrow?" or
    "Is this library closed tomorrow?" or
    "Are you closing tomorrow?" or
    "Are you closed tomorrow?" or
    "Is this closed tomorrow?" or
    "Is this closing tomorrow?"

    Anyone explains?

    You can ask the librarian:
    * Is this library closed tomorrow?
    * Are you closed tomorrow?
    The librarian will understand what you are asking!

    Cheers,

    Or "Will you/the library be closed tomorrow?"

    Or if you don't want to worry about the closed/closing problem, you could try "Will the library be open tomorrow?"!!!

    It's strange that nobody has suggested that you simply put the question to the librarian as you have to us.
    You want to know if "the library is closed tomorrow."
    The library is closed tomorrow. Statement
    Is the library closed tomorrow? Question.
