I am looking for software for an old computer of my father's. He has MS Works and uses word documents. He has lots of files and would like to continue using Works but a new laptop he purchased does not open .wps files. Will LibreOffice works for him?

The tag on the files he uses is .wps

Suggestion, you can try LibreOffice as a portable application ( http://portableapps.com/apps/office/l... ) and test it yourself, or give it to your father to play with. If it meets his/your needs then you can do a full install.

It seems LibO does support this file type. Just double click on and see if it opens.
