The book has expired, but it's still showing up on my Adobe Digital Editions.

Expired titles have a red banner over the cover

The book has already been returned, and it's off your account, but your Adobe Digital Editions still has a record that you've borrowed that title. It may be a nice way to keep a list of what you've read.
To delete it:

  • Click on the eBook.
  • Click on the book once. A blue box will appear around it.
  • Right-click on the book
  • Select Remove from Library.
  • When the pop up box appears to confirm your action, click Remove.
