Russell Library Closing
From the mayor's office:
Please be advised that the Russell Library will be closed effective immediately until further notice due to discovery of bed bugs in the library. This is being done as a preventive measure. The City is quarantining the library until further notice, hiring an exterminator and preceding with their professional recommendation.
Please place library materials in a sealed plastic bag before they are returned to the library. This is a preventive measure that the city will be taking to ensure that the public exposure be minimized.
From Karen Swartz: I was in the library when the announcement was made over the intercom system that the library was closing due to bedbugs. I asked the woman who made the announcement if bed bugs had been found in books, or where they were found. She stated that they were found in one of the chairs in the computer area, and in one DVD case. She also said that some fumigation was started yesterday.
