URBANA, Ill. (AP) - The Urbana Free Library has reopened after workers using specially trained sniffer dogs determined a possible bedbug infestation there was not widespread.

The library said in a press release it was resuming normal operations Saturday after the bedbugs were found to be limited to a bin used for returning checked-out materials.

The bin and items inside will remain isolated until they can be treated.

The library had closed after a bedbug was discovered in a staff room Thursday evening.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2ahWTP7 ) that two sniffer dogs were brought in from a company in Chicago to search the 50,000-square-foot library.

They alerted staff to the presence of bedbugs only once, while sniffing around the return bin.
