Library books on the kobo

Does anyone know what happens when library books reach their due date on the kobo? I have not yet had this happen, as I have read all my books and returned them well before the due date. However, I have a couple due to expire when I am away next week and there is a chance I won't have finished them in time. Unfortunately Overdrive has no renew option and the waiting lists are SO long I don't stand a chance of getting another copy.

I realise they will expire in ADE, but if I don't plug my kobo into the PC until after expiry, will I still be able to read them or are the books smart enough to sync with the date and time on the kobo itself?

Sorry, but the kobo has an internal clock. Once the expiration time is reached, the book will no longer open. Never tried messing with the clock to fool ADE on the kobo though. Interesting experiment...

About a month ago I was only a few pages from the end of a book, when the book expired. I had been reading in the morning, but when I came back to it in the afternoon I couldn't open it.

I changed the date back a day and I was able to open the book in order to finish it.

Expired books will stay on the kobo until you purposefully remove them. They are not removed automatically in my experience.

Weird. I had some library books that had expired. They were inaccessible in ADE, but I could still read them on the Kobo.
