WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Wichita public library will reopen its main branch Tuesday after dealing with bedbugs that were found last week.

A patron reported seeing an insect last Wednesday in a chair at the downtown branch. An expert identified it as a bedbug, and a search turned up more of the insects on chairs in two lounge areas.

Library officials brought in pest control companies and a dog trained to detect bedbugs to search the premises. All of the lounge seating has been removed, and other seating and some materials on shelves have been treated.

Library director Cynthia Berner Harris says any patrons worried that they might have borrowed infested materials should return them in zippered plastic bags.
