What advice do you get from a librarian?

Believe in your shelf.


What did the librarian tell the person who checked out 100 books?

Don’t overdue it.
 




OpenOffice is software from the Apache Software Foundation, featuring six personal productivity applications: a Word processor (and its web-authoring component), Excel spreadsheet, PowerPoint, Drawing, Equation editor, and Database. The software is available on Windows, Linux, and macOS and is localized, supporting over 110 languages worldwide. 

If you don't have Microsoft Office on your computer, this is an easy solution because it's free to use and download on any computer.  What's great about using OpenOffice is that the software will open any Microsoft Office document!

 You can also save any document in OpenOffice to be compatible with Microsoft Office. That way you can continue where you left off on another computer or device. Visit www.openoffice.org 

to get started.
