It seems as if just when you’ve got a computer-related-something figured out, it changes.

But there’s help!

Folks who could use a hand understanding Windows 8 can get it at the Nelson Library on Wednesday, October 15 from 3 – 5 p.m.

This free session is presented by Louise Latremouille, author of the “My Parents” computer book series.

Latremouille, a graduate of L.V. Rogers in Nelson and has been featured in major magazines, began her series of books-for-the-baffled to help her parents, who were having trouble catching up with the fast pace of technology.

Titles include My Parents’ Computer and Internet Guide, My Parents’ Computer Guide: Beyond the Basics, My Parents Went Mac!, and others.

What began as step-by-step instructions to help her parents stay connected became a small run of printed guides on her local drugstore counter.

Enthusiastic response convinced her to create the series and take the show on the road.

The free session offers hands-on help to learn the basics of the Windows 8 operating system.

Participants need to bring their own Windows 8 laptop or tablet, and must have basic computer skills.

Pre-registration is required. Call the library at 352-6333 or email
