Do you mean permanently or just out of sight on the Device?

You might also get more help if you told us which Kindle, the people here are not clairvoyant.

If all else fails, read the instructions for your model.

Delete them off the reader then go to Manage Your Kindle page on Amazon, find them and delete them for there. (I assume these are public library books you have borrowed)

You remove them the same way you remove any book from your kindle depending on which model you have.

I'm also having this problem with my Kindle Fire. My public library loans have all expired, but the covers of the books are still showing on the device.
I've tried:
*holding my finger on the cover and selecting "Remove From Device" and also "Remove from Carousel"
*connecting to my computer to delete the files
*signing in to Manage Your Kindle through Amazon and removing the books there
Still the covers are there. Any suggestions?

They should disappear if you permantly delete them from MYK. Maybe you need a reboot.

Yes, go to your Manage Kindle on the Amazon Kindle page and manually remove them from the list. Then you have to sych your Kindle and they will disappear!

I have done the suggestions below, and neither loan has disappeared. I have also re-booted.
I don't have the Fire, I have the Touch.

A couple of books on my carousel do not show the cover of the book until I tap on the book to read it. I have a Kindle Fire.

I have a kindle keyboard, my library book loan ended and it does not show up in my kindle library but it still shows up on my kindle. How do I delete the title from the kindle?

On the home button, press right. A menu will come up. I think near the bottom it will say "remove from device."

Also, if you will connect to your wifi, it will put a new title on your home screen saying the Book Title <Loan Ended> You do the same thing to remove that. Press your home button towards the right, and scroll down until you highlight "remove from device."

I just followed your advice to "remove from device". Easy. I just needed a refresher lesson.
Thank you so much.
