Cannot modify library file...

In an assembly, I am trying to create a new part. After all of the information has been entered, I pick the face to work from, press ok. And then I get the error "Cannot modify library file..."
Any suggestions?

Folders mapped as "Library Search Paths" are read-only in R6 so you cannot accidentally modify a
library part. If you need to modify a part, either move it tp a workgroup search path, or
temporarily change your Library paths to Workgroup paths.
