It's probably a good idea to figure out what the problem is, rather than 
just use sudo to "solve" it.  Can you send us the output of the 
following commands?

ls -ld /var /var/lib /var/lib/koha /var/lib/koha/library

That will (hopefully) tell us if you're trying to do this as the wrong 
user, if your permissions are messed up (which would likely cause more 
problems later), etc.
