Windows 7: Customize Library Icons?

Customize Library Icons?

Now every other folder and program in Windows 7 will let you customize its icon.

Why is there no option to customize the libraries? I have multiple libraries that I have created. But they all have a generic icon for libriaries.

Does anyone know if there is a way to change this?
