    I updated from 10.6 to 10.7 and now when I go to my username directory I do not see a library folder anymore?

    Then when I go into the main hard drive I do see the library folder but it's not the user one?

    You can unhide it with the following command in terminal:

    Code:
    chflags nohidden /Users/<username>/Library

    I was just about to point out the same tip. Thanks for sharing it; one of the first things I did when I upgraded to Lion this evening.
