Yes the library is near by sounds better
"Yes, the library is nearby" - accepted 10th July 2018
¿Why está and not es? The library is should be fairly permanent in its location and you would not refer to it as being close unless you are (relatively) nearby.
the permanent/temporary thing only works for feelings/characteristics. Location = estar.
The distance does not matter.
Location, location, location.
"Estar" always with locations.
I put "the library is around here." It's the same meaning, so why is it wrong?
Because that sentence has it's own Spanish translation that has a same meaning too.
Isn't "cerca" near or close???
Cerca is near, nearby or close.
Like "we are near the school" ="estámos cerca de la escuela"
To express closed/shut, cerrado/cerrada is used.
I do not have an accent sign in the keyboard
Hold down the letter for racing gives you options
I got it wrong because i didnt put a commar.
The system doesn't correct punctuation, with the exception of the apostrophe, so maybe you had another error.
Library is close by is good english
If you put 'The library' the system may accept 'close by'. If not, use the Report button so that the alternative translation can be added to the database.
My (Collins) dictionary gives "circa" as close or nearby
I hope it put 'cerca' rather than 'circa'.
Why is it está and not estás?
estas=you are (informal)
esta=he, she, or it is or you are for a more formal situation
What is difference between cerrado and cerca?
'Cerrado' is from the verb 'cerrar', 'to close/shut': 'The library is closed/shut'. 'Cerca' is an adverb meaning 'nearby, close, near, close by'.
My answer is correct
Can you tell us what you put? We have no way of seeing your answer.
'Yes the library is near' not accepted??
If you have written in the right language, then your sentence should have been accepted.
I accidentally translated it to english instead of writing it in Spanish and got it wrong
cerca means closed tho yo no comprendo
'Closed' is from the verb 'to close' and is 'cerrado'. 'Close' is an adverb meaning 'near'.
I caught a typo. It should be "Yes, the library is closed" you forgot the d
.....está cerca = is close (nearby)
.....está cerrada = is closed
