CORVALLIS, Ore. – Valley Library at Oregon State University will reopen at 4:30 p.m. after being evacuated because a threatening message was found on a whiteboard in the library.

Police and public safety officials investigated the message and determined it was not credible.

During the investigation students and staff members were told to stay away from campus areas near the library.

The library closed at 1:30 p.m., and everyone in the building was asked to leave immediately.

Students were told to use other areas of campus for alternate study, research or other work.

A sweep of the library by public safety personnel determined it would be safe to reopen the library this afternoon.
