    Default at/in school/library/park

    I want to write rules for the following places and I don't know which preposition I should use:
    1. You mustn't ...... in a cafe/ in a park/ in a library.
    2. You mustn't ...... at school/ at a swimming pool.

    Is this correct?

    I agree with "in" for #1. I also agree with "at school". For a swimming pool, I would probably say "Don't run around/near the pool".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
