Step 4: Search for the e-book you want at the Download Library site (Limit: 3 ebooks at a time). When you find the title you want, click on “Borrow.” Click on “Download” and select “EPUB ebook.” Click on “Confirm & Download.” The book will download to your Nook if you have an active wifi connection.
