Why not "We are opposite the library."?

I think opposite may imply something across the street such as a church opposite the library. If that were the case, you'd probably say that you were in front of the church instead.

I had "We are in front of library". I knew from the outset that it should have been "We are in front of the library" but I was using the click on the words function and there was no "the" to click on.

I am a native English speaker from Australia, and I would typically say "out the front" rather than "in front" when referring to my position relative to a building. I have reported this alternative translation.
