Computer tutorials for the baffled at Nelson library

If Google is a verb, Tweeting is no longer for the birds, your favourite novel might live in a Cloud, and it’s hard to know your Mouse from your Megapixel. What’s a digitally-baffled person to do?

Go to the Nelson Public Library, where CAP (Community Access Program) leaders Tim Inkster and Sara Markin are available to unravel all those e-mysteries through group or one-on-one tutoring until the end of March.

Tutorial help is available for basic computer terminology and navigation, Internet search skills, Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Outlook), email, Skype, or Youtube account setup or help, anything Facebook-related, how to download e-Books to a variety of devices, how to learn your way around your iPad, Kobo, Kindle, or other eBook readers — and some stuff we haven’t thought of.


There’s no hard and fast time limit on appointments; you’ll get the time you need. The CAP whiz-kids are available Monday from 4  to 8 p.m.; Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m.; and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Appointments can be booked through email: or by calling the Library at 250-352-6333.
