How To Recover Photo Library From The Corrupted Hard Drive?

Hi, after replacing a corrupt hard drive (as diagnosed by Apple Genius), I am trying to recover the Photo Library from the old drive using a SATA to USB cable on a MacBook Pro 2011 running OS 10.13. Finder shows the old Photo Library on the old drive (now external and connect via cable to the MacBook Pro), however, it says it cannot read the Library, even after opening Photos in repair mode. Any ideas on how to see specific photos in the old Library, avoid the corrupt ones, and move the good ones to the next hard drive on the computer?
