> $sql = "UPDATE library SET title = '".$_POST['Title']."', author = '".$_POST['Author']."', status = '".$_POST['Status']."' WHERE id = $Id ";

Then you are begging for "SQL Injection"!

So, you really should first escape each field:

$etitle = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['Title']);
$eauthor = ...
Then you can interpolate:
$sql = "UPDATE library SET title = '$etitle', ... ";
