The only way to merge Libraries is with the paid ($20) version of iPhoto Library Manager

I see that "Terence Devlin" is a responder most of the time to this question. Just wondering if you work for the company that sells iPhoto Library Manager? Also does anyone know if Aperture can merge iphoto libraries?

And the fact remains that the paid version of Library Manager is the only way to merge Libraries

I had the same issue and needed to merge three iPhoto libraries into one. What I did was Open each iPhoto library individually and export all the photos in the library to my desktop. Then I closed iPhoto and opened the library that I wanted to have all the pictures in and Imported the photos into that iPhoto library. After I was done I deleted the other two iPhoto libraries. It is a little time consuming and perhaps not the best way, but it worked for me. Thanks.

That worked for you but that didn't merge Libraries.
Your process got all the photos (though you don't specify which versions) into one Library. You didn't get much of the added metadata, none of the Albums, edit history on the shots, versions, faces and so on.
Merging a library means getting all the information from the Library, not just one version of the photos.
