Go to your library's website and check to see if they offer digital edition loans. If they do, there should be something that says which platforms are supported. Make sure the platform/version you want is compatible with your device. There should be directions on the website.
Yes, C. Carrillo -- you would download the free Kindle app from the app store into your iPad. Transfer Kindle books from your computer into iPad. We do this all the time. Also I think you can purchase the Kindle book directly from your iPad.
to read all kindle books on a nook, (with or without drm) you simply run the kindle app on your nook. no need to strip drm. nothing illegal. yes, of course you can do with your nook whatever you want: you can buy and sell it or not, use it or not, hang it on the wall or not, drill a hole into your nook or not, put the nook in a drawer or not, read kindle books on your nook or not..yes, you can do that all without going to jail.
You need to root it via an SD card and card-reader. It's easier that it sounds. I own one, and it runs a version of Android OS which you can download the Kindle app via the App store.

Technically, it is. In the USA, stripping DRM is a violation of the DMCA. Stupid, but true.
"Use of Digital Content. Upon your download of Digital Content and payment of any applicable fees (including applicable taxes), the Content Provider grants you a non-exclusive right to view, use, and display such Digital Content an unlimited number of times, solely on the Kindle or a Reading Application or as otherwise permitted as part of the Service, solely on the number of Kindles or Other Devices specified in the Kindle Store, and solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Digital Content is licensed, not sold, to you by the Content Provider."
With that said, I doubt that Amazon would ever win a case against someone removing DRM simply to port to another device for their own personal use. Fundamentally, it's not much different than the same bitching and moaning that occurred when record companies found out that people were making mixed tapes, recording TV shows or taping songs off the radio. They're going to be more worried about the guy selling bootleg copies at a flea market than the kid who wants to read a book on a competing device.

this limitation is about reading an amazon book on a reading device, such as an iphone or an android device. amazon simply does not want that you print out the book and sell it or make money with it otherwise. but it is legal to buy a digital amazon book and read it on any device where amazon has programmed a free app for, like an android device, for example the nook.
of course the kindle app is available on the nook. read my earlier posts. the easiest way to install the kindle app is by inserting a "n2a" sd-card (available on amazon.com) and then start the nook. this is it. you than get an additional light gray button on your screen where you can access everything: email, opera browser, pdf-reader, kindle-app, google playstore and everything else you want. it cannot be easier than that. you do not change "write" or burn" the code inside the nook, so you do nothing illegal.
hello us geisha girl- yes you can read amazon books an a nook. simply get a "n2a" card for your nook (available here on amazon). then start your nook. you will then see a small light grey button on the right side: when you press this one, you get everything you see on an android tablet: email, browser, google maps, playstore, kindle app to read amazon books and so on. this is the easiest way to do it. have fun. if this sounds too complicated, i could send you one of these cards.
