[Koha] Setting the calendar/due dates KOHA

We are setting up our calendar and circulation parameters. We're having
trouble figuring out how to "make it do" what we are accustomed to, but I'm
starting to wonder if there is no way to do that...
In our current system, we allow books to check-out for 3 weeks. We "count"
the days that we are closed, so an item going out on Monday the 2nd would be
due on Monday the 23rd.
The only time an item going out on a Monday wouldn't be due on a Monday is
if the library has a holiday on that day... in which case, we would roll the
due date forward to the next day that we are open.
But otherwise, patrons can usually tell when their items will be due based
on what day of the week they came in. Does that make sense?
As far as I can tell, that system won't work in Koha. If we tell Koha that
items circulate for 21 days, but that we are closed on Sundays, the computer
doesn't count the Sundays... an item going out on Monday the 2nd would be
due on Thursday the 26th. Is that the way it works for your library?
