Need Help with PDF?

The pamphlets and booklets we mention can be downloaded right off this site, in Portable Document Format, or PDF.  They'll look just like they do on the screen, complete with the text layout, graphics and images.

Before You Print

To view or print these PDF files, you need a free software "plug-in," known as the Adobe Acrobat Reader. This plug-in is useful for lots of sites throughout the World Wide Web. It's also free and easy to install. Just follow these simple instructions.

Download & Install

To download and install the Adobe Acrobat Reader, click on the download button below and follow these easy steps. 

  1. Register with Adobe (if you haven't already registered as an Acrobat Reader user)
  2. Choose the Reader version, platform version, and language version you need, from the pop-up lists.
  3. Click the "Download" button at the bottom of the page. You may need to use the "Save Next Link As..." or "Save to Disk" functions of your Web browser.
  4. After the application has downloaded, quit your Web browser.
  5. Double-click the newly downloaded file.
  6. Follow the installation instructions on your screen.
