You are correct. Library books require ADE because of the license restrictions. Period.
You can move un-protected books using the trick you talked about (load them to the tab, force them to the card, put the card in your Nook). There are lots of sources for older books like Project Gutenberg
But, without a computer, you're stuck when it comes to library books.
Also, I should probably warn you that PDFs can be a pain on the NST. You can't zoom. It's far better to find epub books.
At my library, you can take your nook in and they will hook it up to their computers to load books, FYI. See if yours do the same.
