Maybe a drop down library selector that has an icon which changes based on the library (with user provided icons)?

Or, maybe a text field/area on the menu bar, with some font/background options to display the library name or a short nickname?

Also, IMHO: The current Library icon would be better if the drop down showed all libraries (not just the unloaded ones) with a check next to the 'loaded' one.

Thanks
Meanwhile, have you considered upping the font size that Calibre uses. You can do that in Preferences->Look & Feel->Main Interface->Interface Font

EDIT : If Preferences->Look & Feel->Main Interface->Interface Font Show text under icons is set to Always the Library name shows under the icon.
