58.L&L – Ben Bulgrien

When Ben Bulgrien wanted to research a new career in marketing, he knew where to start: his local library. Five years later, he’s showing others in South Bend how to make the most of their library, too. In January, he’ll lead an in-person workshop expanding on his Bendable Community Collection—a playlist of learning resources—by detailing additional tools and touring the St. Joseph County Public Library’s digital media lab. “The resources that the library gave me is what got me into the position that I’m in now,” Ben said. “So it’s cool to be a part of someone else’s movement in their own direction.”
