library? buy a manual? it's only $14 or so, and you WILL need it anyway.
Autozone has online, not too good, repair guides.

Joe, welcome to the forums!! There's not a diagram under the hood or in the engine compartment? How 'bout the owner's manual?
Aaah, 100 second wait.......time enough to get a glass of tea and granola bar.

Posts: 11,588 has a so-so diagram in the repair guide section on accessory drive belts:

| Repair Guides | Engine Mechanical Components | Accessory Drive Belts |

Basically locate the tensioner and it will either have a bolt head in the center or possibly a 1/2" square hole for a 1/2" drive breaker bar. Carefully rotate the tensioner clockwise to de-tension the belt, and slip it off the easiest pulley to access. When belt is clear, carefully ease the tensioner back counter-clockwise until it stops. Fish the old belt out and reverse the procedure. Make sure the wrench or breaker bar is seated on the tensioner and that you maintain positive control when removing and applying tension.

After installation, double check that the belt is fully seated on all pulleys; it's very easy to get the belt part way off a pulley.
