Libraries on alert for bedbugs

Local librarians are on alert after bedbugs were found recently in books at two Connecticut libraries.

While none of the parasitic insects were found locally, library employees are taking measures to make sure they don’t end up there.

“We’ve been following it closely,” said Wallingford Public Library Director Leslie Scherer. “We have a procedure in place but we haven’t had any problems.”
