First off I have to state that I've had my nook since 1/26 and had zero problems. No freezes, books loaded fine, sideloaded, got the 1.2 update, reading more than I have in years.
One of the main reason's I wanted a nook was so I could checkout ADE books from my local library system that has an extensive collection and adds new titles regularly. So last night I was happily reading an ADE book and I happened to jump to the settings pages to check something. When I pressed Reading Now to get back to the book I get this message something like "You no longer have rights to open this digital title" (or something close to that). Hmmm.... So I tried a few more times and realized that the library "checkout" time must have expired. I went on-line and sure enough I had checked the book out precisely 14 days before to the minute. Lesson number one - need to keep a closer eye on those dates, can't just turn something in overdue!
So far the Library eBook experience has been great so we'll see how well the tech handles this situation. The eBook I was reading wasn't available because someone else had a hold on it. I put my own hold so in a few days/weeks I will get a notice that it is available. I will then be able to re-download the eBook into ADE and then over to the nook. I plan on removing the expired eBook from the nook and ADE on my desktop before re-downloading the eBook.
I fully expect the process to work as designed - it will be interesting.

That is what I do like about ADE, it clearly displays how many days are left on my checkout of the book, good luck, I think everything will work fine when you re-check out the book.

There is a section on this in the manual. Its in My Documents.

The Adobe Digital Editions applications is a free download.

When you checked out the book, how did you get it on your nook? I would love to do that!
Adobe Digital Editions is the standard method I believe, the library website should also have instructions on how to download the e-books, mine even had a section for the Nook. Reading library books has been awesome, I tend to read them faster since I know they won't be there after 21 days (or however long your library checkout period is). Happy reading
