ALLENSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Bookworms are always welcome at a
central Pennsylvania library, but a different kind of critter has
kept patrons away from the building for more than a week.
The Allensville branch of the Mifflin County library has been
closed since Feb. 10 because of the putrid smell from a skunk that
may still be prowling among the stacks.
Library employees can't find the skunk or get rid of the odor.
Menno Township has enlisted a professional trapper to find it.
Supervisor Harold Johnson Jr. doubts the skunk is in the
building. Johnson believes it was outside near a ventilation unit,
which would explain why the smell is evident both inside and
outside the library.
