Halifax library closed twice after bed bug sightings

Halifax North Memorial Public Library has closed twice in the last week after staff discovered bed bugs on a piece of library furniture and on CDs and DVDs that had been returned.  The Gottingen Street library was closed for spraying last week and again on Thursday morning. Terry Gallagher, facilities director at Halifax Public Libraries said  “This is a very rare occurrence for the library but any public space is vulnerable to these types of pests. We’ve identified that this is not a facility issue, these are things coming to us.”
