71. L&L-Chista Keramati

Whether for work or just plain fun, for Chista Kermabati, the best way to learn is for free. Thanks to Bendable, she’s doing just that. The South Bend resident is using the lifelong learning platform to access edX courses—at no charge—through the library. She’s started with classes on data visualization and agriculture to supplement her background in international development. Up next in her Bendable queue is the fun: poetry and literature. “Those courses are expensive, so I see how this is useful for many” patrons, Chista said. “I really love this resource.”
