It's a package, not a library. Libraries are directory locations and typically hold multiple packages.

If earlier you got a message telling you of successful installation, then the most likely error is failure to execute code that loads the packages contents into your R workspace. 

library(climtrends) # needs to be done before you will see functions from it in you console session.

Of course, it's always possible you misspelled the function name. I see that the package uses a lot of camelCase names and R does NOT allow errors in spelling (such as your spelling of the package names as CLIMTRENDS. )

On a mac running R 3.6 I got no error installing from source. It did not require compiler tools.
