    Please do not be impatient. We are all volunteers and we will answer when we can.


    Thank you. :)
    They mean different things.

    Sentence 1 asks if the library will open for the first time ever today. Perhaps there will be a ceremony where someone will open the doors for the first time. Maybe it's the first time there has been a library in the town.

    Sentence 2 simply asks if the library will be open for people to come in and borrow books today. Will it be open, not closed?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Welcome to the forum, eleanordsouza.

    Please give more helpful titles to your threads. Will the library be open/opened? would have been good for this.
