Off the bat, I would say that ("MM/dd/yyyy") is causing the issue. But to be safe--what object type is db?

What Db engine are you using (Sql Server, Oracle, Mysql, Access, ..)

If Mysql the date should be in the following format: "yyyy-mm-dd"

Database db = DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase("SQLConnectionString");
                string sqlCommand = "stp_librarysuggestionInsertNew";
                DbCommand dbCommand = db.GetStoredProcCommand(sqlCommand);

Did you try changing "(MM/dd/yyy)" to your variable name like:
DateTime somdDate = DateTime.Now;  // example datetime variable
 
db.AddInParameter(dbCommand, "@datecreated", DbType.DateTime, someDate);
