From a doorway marked La Sala, a standing-room-only crowd had formed a line reaching to the street. They had come to hear Peruvian guitarist Ciro Hurtado perform at the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library. Many were worried that they might not get a seat in the small, intimate auditorium. "I'm glad to see this happening here," said Cheryl Johnson, who drove from Los Angeles for the occasion. "People turn out because you certainly aren't going to see him on MTV."

It was more than a critical victory, if that's possible. It was more like a cool breeze. Technically, no one in the sweltering Laker locker room late Friday night could feel it, but it was there, bringing relief to one team and two players who had been taking the heat. Vlade Divac, who made his free throws, and Cedric Ceballos, who made his first appearance of the series, are heroes again.

So, Jose Aponte [librarian of the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library] is leaving our community for a community he describes as "more conducive" to the arts ("Closing the Book on O.C. Career," May 13). And County Librarian John Adams says: "We certainly hope to have [Aponte's replacement] in place . . . ." Nobody is going to replace Jose. He is one of a kind, and as a member of this artistic community, I will miss him. For several years, I produced reader's theater with Jose. Thousands of readers came in and read with Ray Bradbury, Jack Smith and other authors.

A board of volunteers working to establish a countywide arts council has applied for a technical assistance grant from the California Arts Council. The board has asked for about $30,000, said Joe Felz, director of the Fullerton Museum Center and a board member. A CAC spokeswoman said the grant, if approved, probably would total about half that much, in accordance with previous technical assistance grants. The grant would be good for the 1994-95 fiscal year.

Thanks to a surge of board and community support, the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library's threatened jazz and ethnic performance series will finish its current season after all, and it appears that at least a "bare-bones" version of the series may be offered next year. The San Juan Capistrano Multicultural Performance and Visual Arts Series of Saturday night concerts and readings had been scheduled for elimination as part of the county's budget cutting.

They hit the eye in an explosion of color, 20 bright Christmas cards decorating the front display cases of county libraries in Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano. But once the multicolored dust settles, what's left is a single, unifying message from service groups like the American Cancer Society and the Leukemia Research Foundation. "This holiday is about caring," said Jose Aponte, head librarian for the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library.
