Ventnor Library/Cultural Arts Center

The Ventnor Cultural Arts Center, Atlantic County Library and the Community Center located at 6500 Atlantic Ave. will be closed today to rid the place of critters. 

The facilities plan to open on Wednesday, Aug. 8 after they are treated for bedbugs.

Bedbugs have been identified in some of the public seating, according to a statement from the city.. The furniture has been removed and destroyed, and the entire building is being professionally treated.

Bedbugs are great travelers so anyone whose been in the building over the last two weeks should check their belongings, the statement advised.

“The city will monitor the situation going forward, and the canine dog from the exterminator will be brought in to make sure there are no new outbreaks,” the statement said.

Further updates will be available at the city’s website
