Question [MacOS] read-only database

When I click on Calibre Library, then Switch/Create Library, a pop-up says:

Read Only Error; attempt to write a read-only database.

I don't know where this database is, and I am not sure where my Calibre library resides, or if I messed it up, or maybe I just have an e-book list.

I was attempting to create a new library with the ebooks I have.

Thanks for any help.

Chip

search for metadata.db

Calibre usually creates the DEFAULT (location) library within your users directory. Of coarse, you could have specified another location or moved it later.
