LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) The city of Lynchburg has reopened a library branch that was closed last week, following the discovery of bed bugs and lice in an area of the facility.

The Downtown Branch of the Lynchburg Public Library, located in City Hall, reopened Monday morning according to a statement from the city. The branch was temporarily closed last week after a pest control company’s routine inspection discovered a small infestation of book lice and bedbugs in one area of the library, the city's statement read.

The contained area was treated over the weekend, according to the city's statement.

The Branch Library has resumed its regular schedule of Monday - Friday, 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
