Bedbugs Halt Benefit Book Sale

KSAL StaffSeptember 12, 2013

A benefit book sale for the Lawrence Public Library has been canceled by the presence of bedbugs in some donated items.

The nonprofit Friends of the Lawrence Public Library announced the cancellation Wednesday.

The fall book sale had been scheduled for later this month at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. But a donor called the group last week to say his donated books contained bedbugs — which an inspection confirmed.

Mary Burchill, who chairs the Friends group, says she appreciates the donor’s candor in reporting the infestation. For now, a large portion of the collected for the sale is quarantined for treatment.

No further donations are being accepted for now.
