You can create in two ways. One using list definition (xml) files or using Object Model.

Below is a snippet to create library using object model

SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web; //or create SPWeb object
web.Lists.Add("LibName", "Description", SPListTemplateType.PictureLibrary);
web.QuickLaunchEnabled = true; //false to not display in left nav

You can add this code inside a feature receiver.
