I started making a game in Java, and someone on stackoverflow recommended me LWJGL. I found some examples, and they worked. Later I wanted to test sprites and every example that I found that loads images imports org.newdawn.slick.opengl.Texture. I can't find that library anywhere. Is there a better alternative, or where can I find this one?

The example you were looking at uses Slick2D along with LWJGL. You can download the library here or the full distribution here. Slick2D is used primarily for 2D games, however, even in 3D games it is widely used for loading textures.
