People Karen Johnson recognized by veterans By Lynn R. Parks

Karen Johnson, director of the Bridgeville Public Library, was recently recognized by four veterans associations. She was presented with a statue of an eagle fitted with emblems representing the Delaware department of the American Veterans Association, the American Veterans post 1694 in Seaford, the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Seaford and the American Legion post in Seaford. The presentation was made in the library by Albert Weir, who lives in Seaford and who is a member of the Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs and of the American Veterans post 1694. Johnson was recognized because of her library’s donation of books for the library at the Delaware Veterans Home. The home, near Milford, is for veterans, men as well as women, who are elderly or disabled. Bill Peterson, who was named director of the state-owned veterans home in March, approached the Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs in October for help in stocking its library. When Weir learned that the Bridgeville Public Library was holding a book sale, he talked to Johnson about donating some of the books to the home. In what Weir called a “patriotic and unselfish act,” Johnson agreed to donate

more than 500 books to the veterans home library. “The books were good quality, and enough to satisfy the need there,” Weir said. Now, the people who live in the Delaware Veterans Home have a good library to turn to, he added.
