A public library in Racine, Wisconsin, will close for one day, Friday, after live bed bugs were found in the location, according to ABC-affiliate WISN.

The one-day closure at the building and bookmobile will allow crews to use bed bug-sniffing dogs to see if there's a problem, and if there is, allow them to begin treating it.

The library will reopen Saturday.
