Step 1: Find a library

First, you need to find a library you want/need to use. A good place to look is here . The playground on arduino.cc has a bunch of user created libraries. I am using some of these in my other Project.

Step 4: Find the code

Look for the folder you just extracted. It should have a folder inside of it. Copy this over to the libraries folder in the Arduino Folder. The library is now installed! Good Job
i have a list of updated libraries on my website.  The folder also includes a readme and revisions file
