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.
