It only takes a few seconds to delete a library in SAS Management Console. Why not just export all of them then delete the ones you don't want after importing?

There are more than one way to skin a cat.
As mentioned above, over-protect the specific library with ACT(s) that prevent(s) the service account in metadata which does the export to access the library reference. Questionable.
Or, export selectively some metadata object types and exlude library ref (-types / -exclude etc.). Easier but still questionable.
Or, maybe better still if you can, change the folder path storing the Library reference to another branch apart from the root folder you want to export.

Great input from everybody
I wonder why you want to export a folder tree and exclude some paths from the export. Perhaps because of the type of data contained on those paths?
Yet another option for those scenarios, the -excludeSubTypes parameters can come to the rescue: http://documentation.sas.com/?docsetId=bisag&docsetTarget=n008xsxs34mvcwn1qrgcmugpzu6i.htm&docsetVer...
