Exhibit: Clarice Cooks Collection

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

Clarice Cooks was born in Modesto, CA, and spent her early years in Ripon, CA. After graduating from San Jose State University with a degree in Library Sciences, she went to work for the San Mateo Public Library. During her more than 40 year career as a reference librarian, she established a circulating record collection to encourage others to learn about and enjoy music. As a tribute to Clarice Cooks, who passed away in 2017, the San Mateo Public Library is pleased to present her eclectic and whimsical collection of turtles, which were collected from her travels around the world.
