Officials close Nebraska library to treat bedbugs

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — Officials have temporarily closed North Platte's library to treat a bedbug infestation.

The North Platte Library closed Friday after a worker discovered the bugs on some pieces of furniture. The worker contacted exterminators, who were scheduled to start the fumigation process Sunday.

Officials tell North Platte television station KNOP-TV (http://bit.ly/1jSWimw ) that the incident was isolated and contained to a number of chairs at the library. North Platte Mayor Dwight Livingston has ordered that the library remain closed until Tuesday.

The library is expected to close again for a second fumigation in two weeks.
