Accessing the Library folder in Mac OS X

I found a need to access the Library folder in Lion while looking for something.  As a PC user, I typically unhide system folders so everything is visible but I haven’t really had a to look in hidden folders in the Mac.  I actually didn’t know the Finder hid any folders.  I found a great page at Mac World that shows 18 ways to view it.  Since I will be looking at it infrequently, I like the first choice.  Open a Finder window and use the Go To Folder command by pressing Shift-Command-G.  In the window that opens, simply type “~/Library” and it will open.  Nice and easy, just the way it should be.
