I just noticed that my homefolder no longer has a library folder.

Is this normal or should it be there.

It's like this on two different machines running Lion.

Everything seems to work ok, but there is no library folder in the homefolder (only in the main hard drive directory).

If this is normal, where is all of the info previously stored here now located?

    In Lion the Library has been hidden.

    It's supposed to be there but is hidden by default in Lion.

    Wow, this answer helped me too - I was racking my brain as to how I possibly could have lost that folder (actually I thought I accidentally moved it as there is now a Library folder inside my Documents folder - wierd! but I'll address that in a separate question).

     

    Thanks all for this great resource that is the community boards....you've bailed me out more times than you know!
