Supposing that Library A has 5000 books and Library B has 5000 books, too.

In this situation can we say like below?

Library A has as many books as those in Library B.


I understand that we usually say Library has as many books as Library B (does).

I think you have to remove the "those" in your sentence.

You could say, "Library A has the same kind of books as those in Library B." but "Library A has the same kind of books as Library B." sounds better too.
