    I went to open my itunes and it said "itunes needs a library to open" then it would only let me choose a library that was dated to last july. I clicked on it and it opened my library from that date. I am really mad because it will now only open that library and im missing almost a thousand songs that have been downloaded since then. Why can i only open a previous library? Are all the songs, movies, and other settings that i have changed in the last 6 months gone? HELP!

    The media files should still be there, but it sounds like your library (a database file) was damaged/lost.

    Do you have any kind of backup, e.g. Time Machine? If so, you should be able to recover a more recent version of the library file. Otherwise, you may have to find the media and add it to the old library again.
