    go (to) the library

    In some statements I have found both: "let's go the library" and "let's go to the library".
    Are each of them correct?
    Thank you for your anwer!

    Re: go (to) the library

    No, they are not both correct. Someone wrote carelessly. The "the" is required.

    Edit: Oops. I did mean "to" not "the."

    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.

    Maybe you mean "to" is required.

    Re: go (to) the library

    So is the only correct sentence "let's go to the library"?

    Your gratitude is appreciated but there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you" - simply click on the Like button on any post you found helpful. That means that we don't go back to a thread which appears to have a relevant or important new post, only to find that it is simply a "Thank you".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
