Question: Will deleting Photos Library on my mac delete photos in iCloud too?

Probably a dumb question and I'm assuming the answer is no, but I wanted to make sure before I deleted the file and all my photos disappeared. My photo library is pretty small compared to some people's, but it's big enough to be taking up storage I need to use on my MacBook air which doesn't have a lot of space. Will deleting the file called Photos Library stored in ~/Users/"your username"/photos delete all the photos in my iCloud photo library too?

MacBook Air, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

Firstly I would try this option, it will delete pictures from your mac automatically based on space needed and originals will still stay in the iCloud. If you still want to delete all the photos choose the first tick and untick it, it will ask you what exactly you want to do.
