The Hanley Library building was evacuated after an email sent to Pittsburgh's main campus said there was a bomb in the building. After investigation, nothing was found and people were allowed reentry.

BRADFORD - On Friday morning, the University of Pittsburgh's Bradford campus received a bomb threat similar to those that have been plaguing the university's main campus for the past two months.
According to UPB Director of Communications and Marketing Pat Cercone, at 10:30 a.m. Friday the main campus received an email stating there was a bomb in Hanley Library on the Bradford campus.
"The email that was received in Pittsburgh is the same kind of threat that the Pittsburgh campus has been receiving for the past several weeks," Circone said, adding that this latest correspondence also came from an anonymous sender.
