Windows 7 libraries feature is defaulted to open in Windows Explorer. Have a look at this article explaining how you can hide the components of "libraries" if you wish - there are ways of "hiding" folders and a registry change to "remove" the libraries function if you don't want it - although I wouldn't recommend this unless you absolutely do not want this facility.

You might also find this article on libraries useful.
