  Yes, with perhaps one exception:

"libBar is written in C..."

  This is almost a sensible start to a description, since the language of 
implementation actually matters for a library.  Better would be

"libBar is a C library..."

  ...the difference being that a library can provide a C API without being 
implemented in C.
