A central Pennsylvania library wants a skunk to check out of the building.

The Allensville branch of the Mifflin County library has been closed since Feb. 10 because of the putrid smell.

Library employees can't find the skunk or get rid of the odor. They say everything they've tried has failed.

The library located in an old schoolhouse is in a rural area that serves many Amish and Mennonite families.

A township official suspects the skunk was never in the building, but may have walked past a ventilation unit outside the library.
