Which one of the following sentences is correct?
She either goes to the park or to the library in the morning.
She goes either to the park or to the library in the morning.
What comes after the either must be parallel. If you have "goes to" after it for one phrase, you need it in the other.
She either [goes to the park] or [goes to the library].
She goes either [to the park] or [to the library]
She goes to either [the park] or [the library].
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
She either goes to the park or ((she) goes) to the library in the morning. (structural ellipsis)
And one more thing, may I? The OP's question was which sentence was correct and not which sentence had poor style. Lack of parallelism belongs to the latter category, as far as I know.
