Mine is a Kindle Fire, wifi only. For the first 5 years or so if I had it on airplane mode I could keeps books longer than the check out date, then at some point that stopped working. Some self-destruct time or something.

The load length is in the overdrive app (on my android), you go into the library, and settings, and poke around until you see the borrow time.

Edit: I just checked on my computer signed into my library, >My Account>Settings>General>Lending Period
