The situation has been resolved and the bat was released unharmed.

“A small bat was captured on our top floor after flying around in the atrium and exhausting himself trying to get out of the library. He was released and appeared to be none the worse for his visit,” Bede Mitchell, Henderson Library dean said.

How the bat found its way into the library is currently unknown.

Mitchell said, “We don’t know how it got in, but it was so small it could have come in through a vent. There is no evidence of a nest anywhere in the library. Knox Pest Control was contacted, but it turned out we were able to safely capture and release it.”
