The bedbug invasion has hit a Long Island library.

The main branch of the Huntington library was closed Friday after a routine inspection resulted in the identification of bedbugs in the facility, said the library's website.

The library will be treated for bedbugs Saturday using what officials call a "comprehensive approach."  The library is expected to be reopened next Tuesday, November 16th.

The library's Huntington Station branch remains open.  An inspection there found that facility to be bedbug free, officials said.

Infestations by the tiny reddish-brown critters have become increasingly common. Bedbugs have been spotted in hotels and apartment buildings nationwide, and at landmarks like the Empire State Building and Lincoln Center in New York City.
