Assuming you have installed MacTeX or gwTeX the directory should be a  
sub-directory of ~/Library/texmf/tex/ where ~ is your HOME directory;  
i.e., NOT the Library directory at the root of your Hard Drive. Which  
subdirectory depends upon your usage: for use by LaTeX alone put it in  
~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/; for general use ~/Library/texmf/tex/ 

Good Luck,
