Public Software Available on Our Computers
The library has the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Mozilla FireFox installed on our public computers with high security settings applied. Feel free to use whichever browser you are most comfortable with, but don't be afraid to try out the others.
We have the free, open-source office suite LibreOffice installed on all library computers. LibreOffice, developed by The Document Foundation, contains a word processor (Writer), spreadsheet program (Calc), presentation program (Impress), database management program (Base), vector graphics editor (Draw), and formulae editor (Math). LibreOffice can also open and save files in Office's file formats, including the new 2007/2010 formats (such as '.docx').
The library has the latest version of Adobe Reader, which is used to open PDFs.
Easily edit images with the free software Paint.NET, which is installed on every library computer. The program is intended to be an intuitive, yet more capable alternative to Windows’ built-in Paint program, featuring support for layers and special image effects.
GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a free, open-source alternative to Photoshop and has many similar high-end capabilities for creating, editing, and retouching images.
