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".   After you click those words you will be directed to the Amazon website to add the title to your preferred device. You may need to provide your 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.
