"Place Copy" an .ai file in the Creative Cloud Library

I have a small logo with its own .ai file in my Creative Cloud library:

Adobe Illustrator > Library Panel > BVC Tools > Type on a Path Widget.ai

 

From that library, I can select that file, command click the file, and choose "Place copy". Illustrator then loads the artwork in the file into the cursor. I click where I want it placed. 

 

I do this so often, I'd like to automate / script it. I can't quite figure it out. Anyone willing to take a shot at an applescript I can run? Thanks so much!

Download the file to it's own special folder, then record an action placing it.

The library panel and its contents are not "recordable" which is crazy to me.
