    in / at

    Hi,

    Which one of the prepositions fits better here?

    "You aren't allowed to use Facebook in/at the college library."

    Should I choose "at" because a library is a small place or should I choose "in" because it is a general prohibition which is true for everyone who is inside the library?
    Denis.

    The size of the place has nothing to do with it.

    Either "in" or "at" would work, but I find "in" more natural.

    Good title and expression. I'll memorize it.
