Upgrading to Drupal 8, custom theme not using referenced CSS file

I am upgrading a theme from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. I reference .css files in mytheme.library.yml that do not seem to be getting pulled into the site.

I’ve looked online and even copied sample coding and replace the names appropriately. Yet I do not see them being applied or reference to either .css file, in the source code or Developer Tools.

If these files look correct, then any direction to what could be the cause will be appreciated. If it is permissions, please let me know what permissions it SHOULD be!

I have cleared the cache hundreds of times, after every change, as well as use Incognito Mode so I know it isn’t a browser or site caching issue.

Thank you.
