UW libraries say bedbugs are gone from library books

“Library books previously infested with bedbugs are now declared free of the insects, according to UW Libraries. The bugs were discovered in approximately 10 books last August, first by a student-employee who noticed black droppings from the bugs in his own books. The employee notified library officials, who took swift action to terminate life in the books. Since then, there have been no reported cases of bedbugs in library books, said Stephanie Lamson, a preservation librarian at UW Libraries.”
