in general, stay away from system>library.
you can deleate caches, preferences, reciepts from user>library (files inside these folders, not folders itself),
but DO NOT TRASH ANYTHING IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHATS IT FOR!

get a maintenance utility to clean your mac for you (macgenitor, cocktail, macaroni)
