North Platte Library Closed for Bedbug Treatment

The North Platte Library closed Friday after an employee discovered bedbugs on some of the furniture in the building.

Exterminators were contacted and scheduled to start the fumigation process Sunday. North Platte Mayor Dwight Livingston ordered that the library remain closed until Tuesday.

Officials say the infestation was isolated and contained to a number of chairs at the library.

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