It's very similar to borrowing a dtb from the real library, only when it's due, the library takes it back and you don't have to do anything about it, no overdue fines!
Do you know: Does the library buy a regular ebook and then modify it somehow so that it will expire when it's due? Or do they only buy ebooks which are in a special format?
