If you don't know how to access Library directory with terminal then use this command:
cd ~/Library
So to unhide the Library folder simply execute next command on terminal:
chflags nohidden ~/Library/
So now you can go to home directory and you can see the Library folder alongside with other folders.
If you want to hide it back again, execute next command:
chflags hidden ~/Library/
So it will hide the Library folder from your home directory.
