Outreach is an important component of the public affairs mission of the MSU Libraries. Many faculty and staff members of the MSU Libraries engage in outreach activities on a continuing basis. For instance, on Monday Dean Tom Peters gave a talk about the Weaver Brothers, Elviry, and the Home Folks during the monthly luncheon gathering organized and sponsored by the Music Monday of the Ozarks group. Approximately 40 members of the public attended, including several descendants of the Weaver family from Christian County, Missouri.
Today, Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, at 10 a.m. Dean Peters will be a guest on the “W Factor” radio show on KWTO AM560, hosted by Larry Freund and David Eslick. They will be discussing the vitality of old-time music venues and jam sessions in the Missouri Ozarks.
