Public Library Books
My library "loans" ebooks as Adobe PDF ebooks and Adobe EPub ebooks.
I have a Kindle.
Can I download from the library and convert to Mobi for the Kindle using Calibre?
What happens when the checkout period expires?

Depending on where you live, it might be illegal to use such a plugin, though. Check before you do.

In this case, the Library OWNS the book and allows you to use it for a period on a legally on (that respects the terms of the loan) registered device.

If you decide to go down the path of borrowing and converting, you will have to decide whether to abide by the timelimits as removing the drm from the epub library books also removes the automatic "return" of the book to the virtual "shelves."
You can google for Apprentice Alf and find info on how to accomplish this.
In any event you will need the computer reader for those epub books as a minimum as the process requires you have that software and download the books to your computer.
