Adobe Creative Cloud at Kingwood Library

When it comes to software, Kingwood Library has you covered. We have recently subscribed to the Adobe Creative Cloud family of apps. This gives you access to Acrobat, Character Animator, Illustrator, Lightroom, Photoshop and more. With an Adobe account you are able to work on creative projects, edit photos, use fonts or stock pictures within the app. There are tutorials to learn how to use the different apps.

To use this software, you will need to book one of our four study rooms. Your first day's booking would be for two hours with a third hour option depending on availability and you may book up to seven days in advance. You can book a study room online or by calling the library at 832-927-7830.

PDF Tools

small pdfLet's face it, PDF's are everywhere. People send them to you, many organizations require the format when uploading documents, and most websites documents are available to download as PDFs. However, sometimes we need a little help to make them more user friendly.


The free Adobe Reader (sometimes called Acrobat Reader) software that is usually installed on most computers does just that, reads (or more precisely, displays) the PDF contents. It also allows users to fill in form fields if the PDF was created with that function. Not all PDFs though were created as fillable as many organizations may want the form filled out by hand with signatures.
