You do not really need the pipe as you can specify what to search for using find.
Second, the find command as typed by the orginal poster of that question i.e (find | grep ...) will start searching in the current working directory and sub directories, so if you are in your home directory you will miss all the system directories where the library files are stored. I suspect this is what happened to you.
matthew-Aspire-7540:/home/matthew % sudo find / -name "libc.so.6"
As you can see from above, my current directory is my home directory and the find command starts searching in the "." (currently) directory. This search will miss out all the system directories.
matthew-Aspire-7540:/home/matthew % pwd
matthew-Aspire-7540:/home/matthew % find | head -n5
