Being able to directly borrow and download books from my libary to an e-reader is my ideal. If there is any device that can do this, I would buy it today.
AFAIK, you cannot checkout and download ebooks from a library directly on to the nook through wifi. You still need to authorize books to the nook through the Adobe Digital Editions program on your computer, and then sideload to nook. I've had a nook and tried to download directly onto v1.2; I haven't heard of anyone accomplishing this on any of the later versions, either.
