The Pittsfield Public Library is proud to introduce Bendable Maine, a robust learning marketplace, in partnership with the Maine State Library. Bendable (maine.bendable.com) allows residents of all ages and backgrounds to easily acquire new knowledge and skills through online courses as well as in-person learning opportunities. The vast majority of the learning made available through the system is free to residents of the state. (When there is a cost to the user, it is clearly indicated.)
Among the features on Bendable are Community Collections–personal playlists of learning resources (classes, TED Talks, podcasts, etc.) on a given subject that are put together by local residents. In short, Bendable is truly community bred, led and fed.
Hop on over to the Pittsfield Public Library on Thursday, November 10th, between 5 and 7pm to learn more about this community-centered lifelong learning system created by the Drucker Institute. We’ll have food provided by Outland Farm Brewery and live music by Hunt and Allison. For more information, call the library at 487-5880.
