Kyle Brockman :

I can help you with this. The best way is to copy the libraries to a backup location first.

Kyle Brockman :

next you will want to choose one library as the master, to make things easier it should be the library with the most pictures

Kyle Brockman :

Then export the pictures from the other libraries into one folder,

Kyle Brockman :

after all the other libraries pictures have been export, click and drag them into iphoto when your master library is open

Kyle Brockman :

then the pictures will be imported.

Kyle Brockman :

after that they will need some clean up

Kyle Brockman :

then all the pictures will be in one library, you should then make a copy of that library on to another device.
