Reference and Genealogy Librarian at Moberly’s Little Dixie Library

Have you ever been interested in delving into the history of our area or in finding out more about your personal family history? Little Dixie Library has the resources to help you discover more about both of these things. We have many tools dedicated to that end—in the form of actual books and documents, as well as in various online databases. Thanks to our recent remodeling, we have a lovely room dedicated to genealogical and historical research and we have just installed a new closed-circuit television there that will be used to highlight the lives of famous individuals from our area.
Moberly and the surrounding towns have been the starting places of many well-known (and sometimes under-appreciated) figures who have gone on to make impacts in myriad spheres of influence in our world. Truth be told, we have also seen our share of bad guys and criminals, whose stories are equally compelling to follow. Who are you related to? Once you take that first step in exploring the past, you will find that you are well and truly hooked and you will want to know more. I am here every day to assist you in your research and to encourage you to discover the treasures that await you in my corner of the library. Come see me soon!
