    After installing Version 10.7.2 I noticed that my mac got considerably slower. The slowdown seems to mainly be during boot up and opening programs. I also noticed that I seem to have two "Library" Folders on my hard drive. One is located under Mac HD/System and the other is located in the first level of the hard drive. Could this be contributing to the issues?

    You also have a library for each user. That part is normal. If it wasn't shown before, it was simply hidden. I don't know what changed there that would slow down loading things from the drive.

    By the way, did you upgrade from Snow Leopard or 10.7.1? If Snow Leopard, keep in mind Lion is more ram hungry. You can partially assess this via activity monitor.

    I've been current on 10.7.2 on my Mid-2009 17" MacBook Pro and haven't experienced any slowdowns at all. How old is your MacBook and how much RAM does it have?
