Unable to create volume using Ansible playbook with error Netapp-lib module is required


I am receving the following error when I try to create a volume. I checked the site-packages directory and have the NetApp-Lib module available (/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/)


TASK [Volume Create] *****************************************************************************************************************************************
fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "msg": "the python NetApp-Lib module is required"}
to retry, use: --limit @/home/johnj482/playbooks/volcycle.retry


Could someone help me to fix this issue?
