I have never been able to tell if I could break glass and get it back (like dirt, wood, cobblestone etc). Is this possible at all? is it possible in version 1.6.2.

Hi, welcome to Arqade! I've removed the part about the village, as it's a separate question. This question here may be useful for what you want. Otherwise feel free to ask another question :) – Robotnik Jul 29 '13 at 5:59

With regular tools? No; once you place a glass block/pane and hit it with regular tools or your fist - it shatters and you get nothing.

However, if you have a tool enchanted with silk touch, glass blocks and panes will drop their respective item pickups (silk touch also allows you to get other fancy stuff from various blocks - like mycelium, grass, huge mushroom blocks, ore blocks, and glowstone).
