Library snakes closed a  D.C. Public Library branch briefly on Saturday after a staff noticed the reptiles near a meeting room.

The Washington Post reports the Georgetown Library closed Saturday when the snakes surfaced; another snake was found earlier that day and released outside, according to The Associated Press. The library called pest control and closed until the building was given the all-clear, reopening Tuesday.

Spokesman George Williams says the pest company found a single dead snake during the library's treatment. The Post reports library staff suspect four snakes were in the building.

According to the D.C. Public Library's website, the library will have another gathering of snakes on Wednesday, but these ones are invited. Reptiles Alive is providing the snakes for an animal show.
