Bed Bugs in Libraries

Bed bugs in books at libraries, movie theatres and malls have increased dramatically in recent years. Bed bugs can attach themselves to a person by their clothing or in their knapsacks. Bed bugs in library books have been increasing in larger cities over the years, New YorkVancouver and even Toronto have had problems with bed bugs in their libraries. 

"Like movie theatres, hospital waiting rooms and subways, the Toronto public library system — which operates 98 branches with 1.2 million members and an annual circulation of 31 million items — is no exception to the bedbug scourge plaguing urban areas across North America." - Toronto Star

Spreading bed bugs from person to person can happen in library books by females laying eggs in the spines of hard cover books or lurk under the paper covers. In 2012, the Toronto Public Library had 24 confirmed bed bug incidents of the 38 reported.
