I'm interested in doing basic electrical circuits as well as fluid schematics in LibreOffice Draw. MS Visio has palettes with pre-made symbols, quite a few of them, that you can just drop onto your Visio diagram. Does LO have any reliable, virus-free, malware-free equivalents available anywhere? I saw a few links, but they did not appear to me to be on reputable websites.

There is freie Schaltzeichen OpenOffice extension, works in LibreOffice too, that adds couple of hundred circuit diagrams symbols.
It is hosted on reputable Google Code.
Install it in LibreOffice by going to Tools → Extension Manager → Add and opening downloaded file.
After installation, for optimal results it is advised to set following options in Draw located under Tools → Options → LibreOffice Draw → Grid:
New symbols can be accessed from appropriate themes in Tools → Gallery.

If you are lucky, then visio import filter might help you: http://ask.libreoffice.org/question/44/visio-import-filter
About websites being "reputable" or not, I have not heard of any cases where opening file with OpenOffice or LibreOffice with Macros disabled was harmful. Just make sure it is not .exe, .com or .bat file or use open dialog in LibreOffice. After opening save the file from LibreOffice, and you should be all good.
