Sending passwords over open public wifi connections

Lately I've been spending time at our public library studying and I find myself needing to connect to their open (passwordless) wifi network with my laptop. My computer is fully patched and I have a firewall so that's seems ok for general internet, however I need to log into some non-https websites and I don't want my passwords to be sniffed (especially my school email account). Is there a (/free/) way I can safely/securely log into non-https websites from an open wifi network like this? Thanks for your help.

Wifi DPF

Please recommend a wireless picture frame that I can load with pictures remotely (through an online service like Picasa, by emailing the device, etc). This is for my grandparents, so the frame should require minimal to no interaction once set up, and I would like to avoid subscription fees for the WiFi service. Decent picture quality and viewing angle would be nice too.
