Windows Media Player provides you with the ability to create libraries, which are data files that contain a list of your music. The library does not actually contain the music, but a list of files you have added to the Media Player software. Media Player does not offer the ability to delete the library database in the software, but you can manually remove it from the hard drive. After it is deleted, you can rebuild it with a new list of music.
