MS Office 2013 Coming to Public Computers April 1

MS Office 2013 is coming to public computers on Wednesday, April 1. 

If you use Canton Public Library's nearly 150 public computers for work, school or personal use come April, you may notice a change to our MS Office software. MS Office 2013 offers improved features and an updated look, but will still open all of the same file formats as the previous version of this software (MS Office 2010).

What is means for patrons: you will still be able to open your old files, and we hope you will enjoy the updated look of the software. You can visit GCFLearnFree.org or Microsoft Technet's to learn more about this software, or attend any of our MS Office computer classes, which as of April will feature the 2013 versions of MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher.
