How can I recover deleted iPhoto Library on Mac?

How can I recover deleted iPhoto Library on Mac? I need some suggestion or guidance. I feel so stupid because I accidentally erased my iPhoto Library to Trash and had emptied the trash securely a few days ago... My friends told me that I can restore deleted deleted iPhoto Library from Time Machine. But I completely don’t understand how to use this app on my Mac. Can anyone help me retrieve my lost pictures from the deleted iPhoto Library that I had empty securely from the trash plus guidance to activate Time Machine? I need those photos back.

When can you recover deleted iPhoto Library on Mac from Time Machine?

As many users know, Time Machine is a backup program. If Time Machine was running when you delete iPhoto Library on Mac, this application would keep a backup of the deleted pictures. You can launch The Time Machine application and go back to the time you want to restore from - select the iPhoto library (by default in your pictures folder) and click restore to retrieve your data. However, if Time Machine was not running and if you unfortunately emptied the trash securely, it is impossible for you to perform Mac deleted recovery from Time Machine. So here we strongly suggest that you immediately start using Time Machine and backing up your files to avoid unexpected data loss.
