Library programs Edit

In programming a library is a collection on files that have been made by someone else for someone to uses while they are programming. By making libraries this makes the programs smaller in size than they would if you had to write out the whole code in the program all the time. You are able to updater the library instead of each individual page of writing so this can cut down the time of coding your programs and keeping the maintaining time down.
