Meet Our Director

While earning his degree in English Literature at Grand View University Trever began working part-time at Adel Public Library and has never looked back. After a brief stint at another metro area library, he became the assistant director at APL in 2015 and has been the director at APL since January of 2021.

Trever is passionate about ensuring the library welcomes every single person who walks into the library.He previously served as the President of the Iowa Small Library Association and cuirrently serves as the President of the Dallas County Library Association.He is also a budding Bibliotherapist and a member of the Government Affairs sub-committee in the Iowa Library Association.

Outside of the library, Trever is a former foster-parent and father to four adopted children. With three of his children now grown, his house is relatively quiet with only his husband Matthew and their teenaged son at home. When not at work, Trever can likely be found on his front porch drinking tea and reading a book while avoiding housework.
