Returning Materials that have Come into Contact with Bed Bugs or Other Pests

If Library materials have come into contact with bed bugs or other pests while in your possession, DO NOT return them through the book drop. Place items in a securely closed plastic bag and call your nearest branch to make return arrangements. To prevent the spread of bed bugs to other parts of the collection, Library staff will quarantine the items to assess the extent of the damage and will determine whether the item(s) can be cleaned or must be removed from the collection.
