    I'm on OSX 10.7, and when I go to users, there is no library folder! So when I try to go into that directory (was there on snow leopard...) and find certain files, I can't! Where did these things all go??? I want them!

    Thanks

    It's hidden in Lion.

    In Finder, click Go in the Menu bar, then Go To Folder and type /Users/*username*/Library.

    You could save it to the sidebar and there is a command to unhide it as well. Google

    Switch to the finder.
    Click on the "Go" Menu
    Hold down the option key and the "Library" shortcut will appear. :):)

    The command to unhide you User Library in Lion as follows:

    You will need /Applications/Utilities/Terminal .

    Code:
    chflags nohidden ~/Library
    To change it back to hidden:

    Code:
    chflags hidden ~/Library
