Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite: Prevention and Treatment in Public Libraries
***BEFORE YOU REGISTER FOR THIS ON-DEMAND WEBINAR PLEASE REVIEW IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION BELOW***
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!
Originally presented October 28, 2015.
At the conclusion of this on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:
- Know how to identify bed bugs and the signs that materials have been in a home with bed bugs;
- Recognize the problem areas in facilities and collections that staff should pay close attention to every day, in order to prevent bed bug introductions from becoming infestations; and
- Understand treatment and mitigation options to protect facilities and collections.
Who Should Attend
This on-demand webinar is intended for all library staff, but particularly those in administration, as well as those working with collections, facilities, and circulation.
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.
