"Librairie" is often used because it's a lookalike. Technically it means 
"Bookstore" instead, but the distinction is not actually useful in its 
metaphor, so it could really be either. In my experience, I see 
"Bibliothèque" in books and software translations, and I hear 
or read "Librairie" in conversations.

Current French seems to have dropped the hyphen on this, regardless of 
what the dictionary says.

"Langage" is used for programming language, but "Langue" tends to be used 
for natural languages.
