At 7:40 a.m. Wednesday, students received a message that the Marvin K. Peterson Library was closed because of mechanical issues.

According to Lou Annino, associate vice president of facilities, the building was evacuated due to a “trouble alarm” from the smoke and fire detection system at approximately 7 a.m., but the alarm was not critical.
