Bed Bug Discovery Prompts Closure of Oklahoma Library

July 19, 2012

The Tulsa Central Library, in Oklahoma, is temporarily closed after bed bugs were discovered on a chair.

Library representative John Fancher says library staff quickly removed the chair from the building after the bed bugs were found. Fancher tells Tulsa television station KOTV that the library notified the Tulsa City-County Health Department about the bedbugs.

The library provided the health department’s contact information to any patron who was in the library Tuesday.

The library says an exterminator is on site to deal with the situation. The library says it will be closed until further notice.
