Library officials say it&rsquo;s not an infestation, but the library was closed temporarily and chairs where bedbugs were found removed after a patron was bitten. Miss Liberty Belle, a beagle trained to sniff out bed bugs, was brought in to use her talents in the library. Glenn Collymore is her trainer. He says she sniffs out the bugs and then paws the area to alert when some are found.</p> Wed, 18 Jul 2012 19:18:52 +0000 Marshall Stewart 22461 at http://publicradiotulsa.org Bug Sniffing Dog Checks out Tulsa Library
