Why not 'vil gerne øge'?

Also, why isn't nummeret acceptable

Would "tallet" be acceptable here instead of "antallet"?

'Biblioteket vil øge bøgers antal.' Why is this wrong?

Why is "vil øge" "will increase the number of books" translated into English as "wants to increase? I would have thought that "wants" would be "vil gerne" or "vil prøver". Please explain.
