Wichita: Central Library Closes Because of Bedbug Problem
From the The Wichita Eagle:
Wichita’s Central Library closed early Thursday because of a pest problem: bedbugs.
Most of the library at 223 S. Main will remain closed — except for services available in the library’s lobby and foyer — until Monday.
The library had not budgeted for the bugs. Library officials and a pest control firm are assessing the extent of the problem.
“We face some difficult decisions ahead of us, I’m sure. We don’t know what it is expected to cost,” library director Cynthia Berner-Harris said during a Thursday afternoon news conference.
