    Same as before (Mavericks) hold the option key when using Go in the finder menu.

    To make this permanent, open your Home directory in the Finder, right click and go to View options. From there enable the Library folder checkbox. ;)

    Also another way is just by using the new powerful spotlight. Just open it up (Cmd+Space) and then type ~/Library and press enter. Boom :D

    I think I'm just going to run a bash script at startup to unhide it so I don't have to do it after every update. Really annoying. I'm not sure what made Apple decide that the user library should be hidden from them but that it's perfectly okay to leave the system and the root library easily accessible...

    Unnecessary, follow my above post and it will stick even after updates. Even going from Mavericks to Yosemite hasn't hidden my Library folder

    Unless, of course, you do a fresh install.
