I am referencing images in the library stack as button icon ids in 
the current stack.  This works fine here on Mac OS & Windows.

One other possibility: to see the images change without opening a 
different card, one may need to script something like

         start using stack "myImageLibrary"
         repeat with x = 1 to the number of buttons
                 set the icon of button x to (the icon of button x")
         end repeat
