Menlo Park library closed by bedbugs

Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Oct 7, 2015

Web Link It seems once again that the bedbug was found on a chair not in books.

I think we can start thinking about these bedbugs are arriving by someone who sits on a chair rather than from books.

I was just in our Rinconada Library last night and felt the need to stand and read a magazine. How can the libraries prevent bedbugs from being deposited the day after eradication?

Henceforth, all library visitors shall strip naked before entering and shall remain in that state throughout their visit.
