No, the library can only be opened from either PADS Designer or PADS Layout as it consumes the Designer or Layout licence.
Thanks for quick reply. I have license for both. I am just wondering why pads library tools is grayed out in PADs designer if a project hadn't been opened. You know sometimes I just want to add or modify a part without messing with a project file.

It is greyed out because wthout the project being opened there is no association to a Central Library and as there is no separate licence for PADS Library Tools this is how it was designed to work.
