Why not? Do you enjoy re-inventing the wheel? if not jQuery, why not Dojo? Or YUI?
Writing complex script on pages without the aid of one of the useful libraries is not wise. These tools abstract all the complexity and cross-browser nuances away for you.
If you write Java, do you use the Java collection classes? Or have you implemented your own List and Map implementations? Do you write your own JDBC driver?
Availing yourself of the available tools is a good practice.
