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."

"Our head librarian is the envy of all other librarians" in Orange County.

Perhaps nowhere is this spirit better represented than with the Friends of the Library, which this month elected a new president and bid farewell to the outgoing one.
