I am going to make up a sentence below.

(1) I will go to the library at 10:50am.

Does that mean I will get there at 10:50am. Thanks a lot.

I see it as more of a departure statement:

I'm going to leave for the library at 10:50.

But for an arrival statement, I'd rephrase:

I want to arrive at the library by 10:50.

The library opens at 11 so I want to get there early.
