The Tulsa Central Library is temporarily closed after bedbugs were discovered on a chair.
Library CEO Gary Schaffer says library staff quickly removed the chair from the building after the bedbugs were found. Shaffer says the library notified the Tulsa City-County Health Department about the bedbugs.
The library provided the health department's contact information to any patron who was in the library Tuesday.
The library says an exterminator is on site to deal with the situation. Shaffer hopes to have the Library reopened tomorrow.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Woody Guthrie's hometown will celebrate the folk singer's 100th birthday this weekend, even though a local state lawmaker said Guthrie was "probably not one of the favorite sons" while he was alive.
Saturday marks the centennial of the birth of Woody Guthrie, which will be feted as part of the 15th annual Woody Guthrie Festival in the eastern Oklahoma town of Okemah.
Democratic State Senator Roger Ballenger notes that while Guthrie wasn't popular while alive, fondness for his music grew in the years following his death in 1967.
