(Megan and I) are going to the library. = We ARE going to the library.
Megan and I = WE

WE + "BE" = WE ARE. (Never ever different).

That is probably the most elementary grammar there is.

These verbs are the first thing most of us teach our students.
I don īt mean to be rude - but I sure hope you know this.

Present tense

Singular
1st person - I am
2nd person - you are
3rd person - he, she, it is

Plural
1st person - we are
2nd person - you(all) are
3rd person - they  are

The correct or more frequently used form is "are", but with the "Rule of Proximity" you can use also "am".
