"In the library" sounds more natural.

I'd say, "I read at the library." Similarly, I'd say, "I work out at the gym."

What seems more natural English to me:
図書館で (としょかんで) = "at the library"
図書室で (としょしつで) = "in the library"
:P

"i read books in the library" ?

that would have stronger implications as to your location. at the library can be anywhere at the location you call library.

in the library is more specific, even if colloquially we don't really differentiate in english. the difference is more pronounced in japanese.

Shouldn't it be "I will read books at the library"? Also, how do you say " I will read a book at the library"?
