DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – Officials say Wayne State University’s Shiffman Medical Library is closed through Monday as exterminators clean because of possible bedbugs.

It wasn’t immediately clear where the bugs were spotted, but university spokesman Matt Lockwood said the school is going to address the issue aggressively to make sure it’s taken care of as quickly as possible.

A pest control company is expected to thoroughly clean the building, which should reopen Monday morning.

In the meantime, students may use other libraries on the school’s Detroit campus.

In February, an exterminator treated a cubicle at the medical library after a reported bedbug sighting. Lockwood says a bedbug-sniffing dog was enlisted to check for the pests and found none. Also that month, a room at an 11-story dormitory was fumigated after a student reported seeing bedbugs.
