47.L&L – Cheryl Ashe

When Cheryl Ashe won the Making Democracy Award last year from the League of Women Voters of the South Bend Area, she was called an “activist, organizer, leader, librarian, communicator and educator.” Now, she wears an extra label: Bendable user. Ashe has long worked with people in the community, including former inmates, to help them gain life skills. Bendable is giving her a range of new resources to guide her teaching. Among her favorites: Community Collections on how to buy your first house and renters’ rights. “I can’t stress enough how great Bendable is,” Cheryl said. “It saved me a ton of time researching.”
