Calibre for converting library epub books for kindle?
Lately I've been dowloading epub books from my local library and putting them onto my kobo. My mom has a kindle and would like to use the library as well. So that leaves me with 2 questions.
1. Can calibre be used to strip the drm and convert from the Epub format into the amazon format?
2. All my library books are downloaded into the adobe digital editions software. How do I get books from adobe digital editions and move them into calibre? I've tried drag and drop but that doesn't work and I can't find ant export function.

It 'can' be done, but not unless you're willing to violate copyright laws and do some extra work. The Kindle is not ideal for library borrowing since they use (mostly) the ePub format with DRM copy-protection. That is one of the few disadvantages of the Kindle.

Note that there is very little doubt that stripping DRM from lending library ebooks is illegal in the US. It is difficult to see how the DMCA can be enforced in practice for lending library ebooks that you format shift for personal use though.
