How long do books checkout?

This varies a bit by system - please note there are never fines on digital books. As checkouts are on a timer, you can never have an overdue book.

Enki Library eBooks: 21 day checkout, can return early; up to 10 checkouts at a time. No renew feature, but can checkout a book again immediately if no one else is on hold for it. 

Freading eBooks: 14 day checkout, it works by a "checkout allowance" that gives you 5 checkouts per week. Unused checkouts roll over for up to 4 weeks. If book expires before you finish reading, just download a new copy.
