I'm helping my mom (technically challenged) get her Nook Tablet fully set up and functional. I have the SImple Touch so my library download is different. Assume the following:

She is online on the PC at the library website looking at what they have.

She is online with wifi with her Nook and has the Nook Overdrive app installed.

What are the steps she does (PC or Nook) to select a library book and have it download to her Nook?

I had a really, really hard time with this also.  After the app is installed, open it up.  At the bottom of your Nook (in the black area) you will see a circle with 3 horizontal lines.  Touch this to open it up.  There is where it will let you "Get Books", "Sort By", "Last Opened", "App Setting", "Downloads", and "More Options". I believe it first asks you to pick a library.  After you pick your library, and put in your card, then you can get the books, through the internet.  All of it is done from your Nook, and not from your computer.  Hope that helps.
