So, your library has discovered bed bugs in your facility or collections. Or maybe your library is lucky and hasn’t yet had a bed bug introduction, but you’d like to be prepared if and when that introduction happens, so you’re not trying to have months’ worth of policy discussions in a few hours or days. This on-demand webinar will provide everything you need to know, from identifying bed bugs, to ways they are introduced into the library, to treatment and mitigation options that will help you protect your library’s facilities and collections on a daily basis. Libraries around the country and world have successfully dealt with bed bugs—you can too! Instructor Sarah Kittrell is the author of the forthcoming PLA publication, Bed Bug Abatement in Public Libraries.

This archived webinar was originally presented October 28, 2015.

Running time: 1 hour, 4 minutes
About the Authors

Sarah Kittrell is the Collection Development Division manager for the Wichita (Kans.) Public Library. While she hates bed bugs with a fiery burning passion, she is happy to share everything she's learned about them with other libraries who are just experiencing their first introduction, or commiserate with those who have unfortunately already become familiar with the critters.

The Public Library Association (PLA) is a division of the American Library Association. PLA’s core purpose is to strengthen public libraries and their contribution to the communities they serve. Its mission is to enhance the development and effectiveness of public library staff and public library services.
