Hi I find myself constantly need to access files from library folder, but finder excludes that, it wasn't indexed.

Is there anyway to index the library folder ?

I believe mdindex will do this. Check it's man page, although the -f switch has been disabled. Oh and no, I'm not going to index either /Library or ~/Library on my system to test

man mdindex
