Libs. I am skeptic about the bottom left specimen in the top pic, however.

I'd suspect some of them to be Libs, though if you'd ask, I think the biggest part looks quiet weird. Are they partially dried already?

That's what I was wondering. The stipes look like they've been handled quite a bit and have started to dry out, too.
In my eyes they are all libs (except for the one I previously mentioned).

OK, thanks. :]
They've been left out on the paper since I got back about an hour or two ago.
Quite a few of them were brown at first, but they've started to dry out already and gone creamy.
The one on the bottom left is slightly darker than the rest, but the gills look the same.
Shall I throw it out just to be on the safe side?

Well, honestly I went out into the woods right behind my house for my first mushroom hunt. I think I found Liberty Caps, but they were small, so I marked the area I was, and I am going back later before its too dark to see to see how much they grow. When they are full grown, Ill post up pics of em, but they look a LOT like what you got, and they match most descriptions, including Wikipedia.
The only thing that sets me off a tad is that the cap's are a lil ridgy, like ruffles, but then again as I said, they are quite small and are still babies.  Can't wait to post up my pics of em and see how they go!

Psilocybe semilanceata do not grow in the woods. What you most likely found is Coprinellus micaceus.
Did they look anything like this:
