YOUNGSTOWN – The Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County (PLYMC) will close Main Library on Friday, September 9 to thoroughly clean the building after what appear to be bed bugs were found on the first floor. The decision to close the building was reached out of an abundance of caution so the building and grounds can be thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and remediated. The building is scheduled to reopen on Saturday, September 10.
