Question Calibre on a Kindle - Library Books

This question is probably very basic and has probably been asked before, but I couldn't find it, so apologies in advance if I've missed it.

My basic gripe with Kindle is that it doesn't support ePub. Though I purchase the majority of my books, I would like the option to check them out at the library as well. Is there a way to download library books onto a Kindle and read them? If so, how is it done?

You would have to strip the DRM from the library books, import them to calibre, convert them, then send the to your kindle

It's not very hard, and you can find threads, such as http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39423 on MR. I read library books (pdf, epub) on my kindle all the time.
