Hello,
another "dictionary" list

Globally speaking:
in means you are in or you go in
at means you are somewhere to do something.
to means you are going somewhere.

I am "at school" as a pupil to work but a dog sneaking in because a door was left open is not "at school" but "in the school"

IN: normally we find "in the": I am in the garden
in without the: I am in town, in bed, in prison

AT: normally, we are "at the":
I am at the cinema, at the swimming-pool.
at without the: I am at work, at school, at home, at rest,

The doctor works at the hospital, the patient is in the hospital.

TO: normally, you go "to the"
I am going to the cinema, to the park.
to without the: I am going to school, to bed, to work, to prison, to town
big exception: I am going * * home .

ok Gernodif.
I am going to a book shop.
I am working at a book shop.
I am now in a book shop.
The first sentence is clearly describing that I am moving and going to the place.
The second sentence means I am working there.
The third one says I am inside a place.
This is what I have understood so far.
