Install ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) on your PC.
Authorize your PC and the Nook with you Adobe ID.

When you download a library book it will show up in ADE.
Connect your Nook to the PC using the USB cable.
Within ADE drag the book to your Nook.

Your library should also have reference material online (videos, descriptions) to help you set up your Nook and ADE, and show you how to download a book. If that's confusing, take your Nook and PC cable into the library. Librarians love to share info.

Here's what I went through

To do that, I had to...

Find the library homepage and discover I needed an on-line account.
Discover I had to actually go to the library to set up the account.
Visit the library to find out what my account user id and password is.
Attempt to flirt my way out of paying some late fees.
Pay the late fees.
Go home and sign on to the library's home page using my new id.
Find the very-well-hidden e-book link.
Select a book for download.
Download the book.
Scratch my head at the 2kb file that wouldn't open.
Actually read the instructions.
Download and install Adobe Digital Editions.
Go to the Adobe website and get a user id and password.
Promise Adobe the first born of my three sons.
Tell my installed copy of ADE what my user id and password was.
Open the file I previously downloaded in ADE.
Hook up my nook to my computer.
Authorize my nook in ADE.
Transfer the book to the nook.
Disconnect the nook from my computer.
Open the book on the nook.

It gets much easier after the first book!

One of my early experiences; I waited and waited for a book and when it was finally my turn, I was so excited and newbie-ish, I downloaded the Kindle version...I own a Nook. So I had to go back on the waiting list...
