Trying to minimize items showing up on Sharepoint 2013 library page

All, I have just stood up Sharepoint 2013 and it is working great. One of our upper management folks is asking if I can minimize the amount of icons that are on the sharepoint 2013 Library page. Please look at the attached file and let me know if there is a way to just have the document library's that I have created appear on the page. If there is a way, I am at a loss.

thanks !!

Just to be more clear, I would only want the "Marketing, Sales, Finance, Human Resource and Technology" icons showing.

basically these are just apps (lists/libraries). to be clear do you need those lists to stay and just the icons go away or wont need the list/libs too ? if yes then just delete the list/library

So, the end result should look like the one attached as screenshot 2 instead of my first screenshot.
I am not sure how to delete lists/libraries. I am fairly new to Sharepoint 2013.

Hi,
PLEASE DO NOT DELETE / REMOVE THE LISTS AND LIBRARIES !!!!!

Some of them are built-in stuff, absolutely necessary for your SharePoint site to function correctly.

This page for the site content and structure is a built-in "admin" page, hence you have to custom filter possibilities as in other views.

Two possible solutions:
1. The way you should do it
- Remove the link to the site content from the navigation
- Create a new page and add the links / content to the libraries you want

2. The way you could do it
Add Javascript code to the page which has logic to hide and restructure the different tiles

Both possible solutions will take time - thats not a five minute done job - but thats how SharePoint is :-)

Sorry - too quick,
there is a third solution - which should be the quickest one (if you can use SharePoint Designer).

In SharePoint designer, when you open your site, you have on the left side the navigation / site objects. Click on "Lists and libraries" and you should get all the lists and libraries in the main window. Now right-click -> Properties on each list/library you want to hide from the site content page.
In the properties window activate the checkbox at "Hide from browser"

Perhaps this could also be done using Powershell script or something similar but I have not  (yet) looked deeper into this.
