First repair your library as follows: Try the following:
1 - launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
2 - Since only one option can be run at a time start with #1 followed by #4.
3 - try copying to the EHD again.
If that fails rebuild the library with iPhoto Library Manager and have the rebuilt library created on the EHD directly.
Using iPhoto Library Manager to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
- Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
- Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
- Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
- In the next window name the new library and select the location on the EHD where you want it to be placed.
- Click on the Create button.
Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments. However, books, calendars, cards and slideshows will be lost. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

Dear Old Toad,
Rebuilding the library within the Iphoto library first aid, according to your instructions, didn't work. I kept getting the same error.
Then I dowloaded and installed iPLM, but the preview of the rebuilt library in the EHD showed the photos all mixed up, not separated by events and without the titles, kind of a mess, so I didn't proceed with it.
Any other ideas or should I take my computer and EHD to the apple store?
Thank you for your reply though, it was helpful to learn other ways that might have worked.

Take it to the Apple store and see if they can resolve the -36 error code in the library.
