The default setting for all digital accounts is to automatically check out requested items when they become available so that step will already be done for you.  Now that it is checked out, you will see the the option to "Read now with Kindle".  The first time you do this you will be asked if you want your default format to always be Kindle books but we recommend clicking "No thanks" if you use more than one format for the digital books collection.  After you click No Thanks you will be directed to the Amazon website to add the title to your Kindle device. You may need to provide your amazon.com username and password if you are not already logged in. Select your Kindle or other portable device in the available drop down menu and click "Get Library Book" to begin the download. You can download eBooks directly via WiFi.

If you would like to turn the automatic check out feature off, you can go to your Settings to do so.  Just remember that if you do turn this off you only have two days to check out and download the item(s) you have on hold.
