The Adel Public Library wants to spread a very special story of hope this month as we welcome speaker and author Hannah Trebec.

Hannah will share the unbelievable story of her life, growing up on the East German side of the Berlin Wall.

After the wall was torn down in 1989, she took away a very hopeful story and a piece of the Berlin Wall with her as well. Hannah then moved to Iowa in 1995.

She will share her experiences, sign books, and discuss her book, Double Cover Up. We are honored that she is coming to share her brave story with us on Saturday, February 7th at 11:00 am.

Library hours are:
Mondays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tuesdays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
