Google has released an official USB driver that should be able to have your PC recognize the Nook Glowlight Plus. Once you download the zip file you need to UNZIP it. If you are running Windows 10 or another modern OS, you should be able to extract the files without downloading any other software.
If you are running Windows 7 or 8.1 and do not have a default program that will extract files you can download WINZIP or WINRAR. Both of these apps are trials, but it will allow you to simply extract the USB file without having to pay any money.
