JQuery -- http://jquery.org/ -- is the best library I have worked with,
bar none, and seems to have huge industry support.  Among other things,
Microsoft recently committed to shipping and supporting it with IE and
Visual Studio.

For building applications in JavaScript, rather than enhancing a
website, the YUI framework is wonderful.

Dojo looks good, and had technical advantages but documentation
drawbacks compared to YUI.

JQuery, plus appropriate plugins.
