    They're not so different.

    You can leave out です。
    私は本を買わない + です。

    The second one need to be as it is.
    私は本を買いません。


    買わない still makes sense.
    買いま wrong.

    You can add らしい or そうだ to 買わない Example : 買わないらしい。 買わないそうだ。
    You cannot add らしい or そうだ to 買いません    買いませんらしい wrong


    There might be still differences, then teachers would answer for you. :) I'm not.
