About the Incarcerated Fathers Library

About HTML format
HTML format allows you to print the application directly from your browser. The format is not fancy but it does the job just fine. Simply select the HTML version of the pamphlet you are interested in. After it is loaded in your browser, select print from your top line menu and print out the application.

About PDF format
PDF format is a special format that requires Adobe Acrobat reader to be installed on your computer. This format prints from your computer in very high quality and thus looks more like an application you might receive in the mail - but downloads take longer than HTML.

You can get the Adobe Acrobat Reader software FREE from the Adobe Acrobat Web Site .
