North Platte library suffers rain damage

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — Days of rain have caused water damage at the North Platte Public Library, shortly after an employee discovered a bedbug infestation.

The North Platte Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/1n6A5Ai ) that rain caused ceiling tiles to fall inside the building on Sunday night. No one was injured, but the incident caused significant water damage.

It comes on the heels of a bedbug discovery in late May, which forced the library to temporarily shut its doors.

The library is still open despite the water damage, but employees have roped off some areas of the first and second floors.

Sara Aden, the library's information systems manager, says water started dripping over the circulation desk on the main floor on Saturday.
