Why is the Nos essential here?

It's not. What was the full text of your answer?

That was it ---- I wrote Bibliothecam visitare volumus and it was marked wrong. If I made a spelling mistake somewhere I can't check it now. Thank you for clarification on the essential point though!

Interesting, here in the forum it shows up in the preferred word order that I was going to argue for. I was given "Nos visitare bibliothecam volumus" as the correct answer.

That is English syntax, not Latin.
