As a precautionary method, an inspection and treatment by a third-party pest control company was also completed, the team has found no evidence of an infestation in the library.
The reality is that we are a high-traffic public place and can be vulnerable to potential pests taking up residence in our buildings. If you do see an insect you are not sure about, please report it to library staff so that we can work to identify the specimen.
The area is safe for students, faculty and staff. We will continue to monitor the area daily for the next couple of weeks.
