If you are going to use emacs extensively, you probably should read the
emacs reference manual and maybe the emacs lisp introduction as

M-x foo RET is entirely equivalent to evaluating


which is a call to function foo. (foo) is the more general mechanism: it
works for any lisp function, M-x foo works iff foo is a command (aka an
"interactive" function). The form (foo) can be added to .emacs.

load-library is a command that takes an argument: the name of the library
to load. See its doc string for details. M-x load-library RET diary RET
is entirely equivalent to evaluating

(load-library "diary")

This calls the function load-library with the string argument "diary".
This form can be added to .emacs. Alternatively, you can use the
require form that I posted:

(require 'diary)

Note that load-library takes a string as argument, whereas require takes
a symbol.
