A Python package is a reference to the name of the folder containing a number of files. A library is the reference to a specific file, can be a .py file.

For instance in Python2 you use:
import Tkinter
this uses file Tkinter.py somewhere in your Lib folder.
Module names are case sensitive.

In Python3 this has changed to a package and you use:
import tkinter
this uses the files in a subfolder called tkinter in your Lib or Lib/site-packages folder.
Package subfolders have a file __init__.py in them.
Python will look at this file first.
Package names are also case sensitive.
By convention package names are in lower case.
