You may need to re-check the time after fixing the time zone!

As long as you already have them checked out/downloaded, yes! Some notes:
Cloud Library App - open each book once before leaving the connection zone to ensure it downloaded. If the app continues to put a "no server connection" bar over your book, put the device into airplane mode while reading (stops app from trying to reconnect to servers).
Freading, Enki, Total Boox - once your book has downloaded to the app, nothing special is required, though we do like to open the book at least once to double-check it has downloaded before leaving the wifi area.
OneClickdigital App - the Download All button can be used to instigate download of all audiobooks checked out. Each book's status will switch to "downloaded" after all chapters are complete. Once downloaded, the book will be able to play regardless of connection.
Please note that BookFlix & Unite for Literacy are in-browser only, and require an internet connection.
Once your book is past the due date, you will get an expired message. Depending on the service, you can either renew the book or check it out again (if no one else is waiting on it). It is best to take note of where you are in the book, delete the old copy from the ereader/MP3 player, and then transfer a new copy (which has the new due date attached).
If you get this message and your book is a new checkout, it probably just did not transfer properly. Delete the 'bad' copy from your device and transfer a new one.
These are the most common reasons for a problem accessing books on BookFlix. It works entirely in your internet browser.
Clear the Browser's Temporary Files or Cache (most common). A lot of leftover "junk" can build up as you use the internet, and interfere with normal functions. Since BookFlix plays directly in your internet window, clearing out these files usually clears up an access problem. If you do not know where to find this option, see this page. It details how to do this for various brands of browser.
BookFlix - Update Flash Player Bookflix needs Flash to run. Usually your internet browser will prompt you to update it if necessary, but if you accidentally closed the message or otherwise missed it: 1. Go to the Install Flash Player site. http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ 2. UNCHECK the promotional offer in the gray box. 3. Download & install Flash as prompted by your computer. 4. Close and reopen your internet browser before attempting to use Bookflix again. Also Consider: ---When was the last time you restarted your computer? We recommend restarting about once a week. This helps your computer start fresh in a new usage session. ---Have you kept up with your computer's required updates? Missing updates often leads to a variety of problems, which will be compounded over time.

Check for and delete any files and folders left over from OneClick: ---Go to "Documents/My Documents" then "Media." (not "My Media"). Delete this folder, it is where OneClick stores the files downloaded for books, old logins, updates, etc. ---Go to "Computer," click on your "C Drive" then "Programs" (if you have a "Program Files (x86)" use this). If there is a "OneClickdigital" and/or "Recorded Books" folder delete these.

If you have been using OneClick regularly and this is suddenly happening, it is most likely a software glitch. Try this first: 1. Close the OneClickdigital Media Manager on your computer.2. Go to the Documents folder. Find the Media folder (not My Media) and delete this folder. The Media Manager makes this folder on your computer.
If that does not work, there could be a corrupt folder on your MP3 player instead. This is most likely if you use more than one computer to transfer to your device: 1. Connect your MP3 to the computer and open its internal storage (browse files). 2. Find the folder called "eAudiobooks" and delete it (if there are multiples, delete all). This is the folder the OneClickdigital software makes on your device while transferring books. It will make a new one the next time you transfer a book.

Sometimes a glitch in book files only shows up on one version of the software.---If you want to be notified when the book is fixed (some people do not).Books can have corrupt files or be out of order on the server. Depending on the publisher of the audiobook this may take some time to resolve. Thank you for taking the time to report this.

The Kansas Library Card has often been confused with other library cards, so in 2013 we decided to try naming it the Kansas Library eCard. Since the card is only a login for digital materials, we hoped calling it the eCard would reinforce that. When a library creates a new eCard number, they may enter your email address so your card information will be sent to you. Paper cards are still available if you want one.
1. send a message to KANILL-L with a GENERAL description of what you have (10 mystery Playaways, 5 YA, etc.) and ask for interested libraries to let you know what they'd like.
2. Once one or more libraries has expressed interest, let them know the titles and FPC numbers of what you have as well as your library code. --They should then create an ILL request from the record in Kansas Main* and remove all other lenders except your library. --Once you say SHIPPED to that request, the holding will change to the other library.
*It is ESSENTIAL that the request start from the record in Kansas Main, otherwise the request will go as a regular returnable ILL. If you notice that the holding in Kansas Main didn't change to the requesting library, ask them to complete the first request (Receive/Return/Check In) and start again with the record from Kansas Main.
