Letter: Former resident wishes Pahrump and library the best

A dear friend, Misty, sent me a photocopy of a letter to the editor from Susan Wonderly, director of the Pahrump Community Library.

Fellow citizens, permit me to say how highly I esteem you. I consider it a privilege and honor to be a Pahrumpian.

Please accept my personal best wishes, and the fond farewell of a fellow sojourner as we come, so sadly, to a fork in the road. Upon departing from you, dear friends, I say to you in passing, try to figure out a way to provide, if possible, the same Inter-Library loan service to Nye County residents as is offered to Clark County residents.

Best wishes to all,

Albert Kaplan
