What are Libraries? 

Libraries are a reusable collection of code that has already been written. We use them when we want to add functionality without have to write everything from scratch. The advantage of using a library is code re-use.

Some of the projects in this set need libraries so this section will show you how to install those.

Libraries to be downloaded 

Our libraries come in the form of zip files that need to be downloaded, but NOT unzipped.

LCD Display Library - This is for the LCD Display and all its colors

OneButton - This is to add some functionality to the buttons found in the set

Adding Them to the Arduino IDE 

Open up the Arduino IDE and go to Sketch > Include Library > Add .ZIP Library.... After that navigate to the zip files you downloaded and add them one by one. And that's it!
