It sounds like when you created the symbol in the library editor, you 
didn't place what you drew near the center anchor point in the sheet.  
Now that that device is place on a real schematic sheet, it's origin 
point is located somewhere far away from where you are trying to select.

Both for symbols and packages, Eagle's selection tool only selects the 
parts' original cross hairs.
