Berkeley library closed after bedbugs found in computer, reading areas

BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- A Berkeley library is closed this weekend because of a bed bug infestation. Bedbug-sniffing dogs found them at the North Branch library Friday morning.

The closure forced the cancelation of an art event.

Visitors were disappointed and a little confused as to how this could happen.

Bedbugs were found in the downstairs men's restroom, under the desks of the public computer area and in a chair in the adult reading area.

The library will be treated and then reopened on Tuesday.
