Building Closed on Friday for Pest Maintenance


I wanted to make you aware that recently we discovered signs of bed bugs on some adult fiction books that were returned to our library by a patron.  These items were sealed off and put into quarantine until we could have pest control look at the items.  We have had experts look at the items and confirm the presence of bed bugs on those materials.  Our staff are trained to look for signs of this on materials coming into the library so that we can keep any issues like this contained.   We have spoken with the patron that returned the items so they can take steps to fix the problem in their home.  These items have been disposed of. 

We have been checking all areas of the collection to make sure that there isn’t a larger issue.  We believe this to be an isolated situation that has been contained, but out of an abundance of caution, the pest experts will be treating our building on Friday.  We will have to close the building that day to allow them to complete the treatment.  The building will reopen on Saturday.  If you have concerns about anything currently checked out, please seal the item in a Ziploc bag and return them to us. 

In recent years, bedbugs have become a growing problem for all public buildings including hotels, schools, hospitals, movie theaters and libraries.  While we hope that we never have to deal with things like this, it does happen.   We will continue to use our preventative measures to keep these issues contained as best we can.  Thank you for your understanding and know that you can reach out to me if you have any questions.
