Where on the new computer are you trying to copy to? Try changing the destination to the Desktop.
Another approach would be to connect the two Macs together with the old MBP in Firewire Target Disk Mode. Then see if you can copy the library without the permissions error.

I used an Ethernet connection to transfer everything else, including all movies and music, from the old to the new computer. How and why will a FireWire or Thunderbolt connection make a difference transferring IPhoto? How will either one of your suggeted options change the permissions message?
I don't understand.

When copying files from one non-network drive to another, one of Mac OS X's capabilities allows someone with an administrator password to bypass all permission issues. The mechanism used to do this doesn't work with network drives.

Perhaps I don't understand the "non-network" concept. Both computers are currently off our network and are only connected with an Ethernet cable to make the final IPhoto album transfer.
Old Toad, I can get a FireWire/Thunderbolt cable and connect the two together. Only the Old MBP has a FireWire port.

From the computer with the iPhoto library, copy it to a disk image, and then copy that to the other computer; disk images can be created in the Disk Utility, which is in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder.
