CARLISLE — With Bosler Memorial Library itself working on developing strategies to prevent bed bug infestations, the library will host a special general information session about bed bugs at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the library, located at 158 W. High St., Carlisle.

The Bed Bugs 101 program will feature Greg Carrera of Ehrlich Pest Control, who will talk about the history and spread of bed bugs, their behavior and preferred habits, how signs of bed bugs can be spotted and how the home can be protected.

The program stems from the library discovering material that was returned with signs of contact with bed bugs. A bed bug sniffing dog inspected the library Tuesday, and discovered a few areas of concern.

Jeffrey Swope, executive director of the library, said there were a limited number of areas in the library the dog identified as having some level of bed bug residue or activity. The areas, which included chairs and books, were isolated and removed for treatment.

The library is continuing to ask the public to help by keeping a watchful eye at home and when they take out library materials. If they have a concern, they are asked to bring it to the attention of library staff immediately.
