How to use my Calibre library on SD card

I bought a new Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) and updated the OS to Android version 8.1.0 and Samsung experience version 9.5.
I have copied my Calibre library from my PC to the SD card on the Samsung Tab. The Library is now in My Files > SD Card > Calibre Library > Calibre

I try to use this library with connect to Cloud (Library on device or SD Card). I am then asked Choose which library. When I continue I only see files on the device and I do not see a button to choose the SD Card.

What should I do to have CC find and load my Calibre library on the SD Card?

One step further

Under settings storage I could format the SD card as internal storage. I copied the calibre library again from PC to the SD card. But now CC complains that library is read only. It then refers to a FAQ which does not solve this problem.
Help please

I've never tried to use CC that way. I copy the books into CC via the Content Server function. You might have more success doing it that way. As far as I know, you actually have to use CC to copy the books into CC rather than store it in a local card. I don't think you can simply copy the Calibre onto a SD card and have it read it. You can connect via a Cloud drive, a Content Server or a wireless device.

MobileRead has a lot of different forums. There is this one, which is the Calbre Companion forum. Calibre has a forum as well.
