The doc string and Elisp manual entry for `load-library' could be more
helpful.
 
Doc string:
 
 Load the library named LIBRARY.
 
 LIBRARY should be a relative file name of the library, a string.
 It can omit the suffix (a.k.a. file-name extension).
 
 This is an interface to the function `load'.
 
Elisp entry:
 
 Command: load-library library
     This command loads the library named LIBRARY.  It is equivalent to
     `load', except in how it reads its argument interactively.
 
The explanation in the Emacs manual is good. It should be
cross-referenced from the Elisp manual. The Elisp manual says nothing
helpful; in particular, it says nothing about _how_ its reading of the
arg is different from that of `load'.
 
The doc string is inadequate on its own. The best solution would be
for it to cross-reference the Emacs manual (click a link), but that
feature was refused.  An alternative is to add some more explanation
to the doc string - about .elc, .el etc.
