Libraries are here to stay so you won't be able to delete them.

Give this article a read to see if it helps understand why they are there at all:

I understand why some people need them - because they are to stupid to manage their files and they need some relatively easily accessible database containing links to all their files. But I'm not one them - I know how to manage my files and existence of libraries is very frustrating to me when i have to fight with OS that keeps forcing me to use them. And in fact I'm being penalize because of it.

Wait a minute - I've just had a look and there is in fact a Delete option on the right-click menu for a Library. (I'm not going to test it on my machine) Does this option not work for you?

No, because i don't want to delete a library - I want to get rid of Libraries in general.
