    Other meaning

    It’s down to three of us for the job in library.

    Does the above sentence mean “ The library only hires three student for the job.”

    No. There is only one job for one person. In the selection process, they have got the number of candidates down to three, who they will choose between.

    The first sentence should have a "the" before "library".
