AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Several buildings on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station were evacuated on Monday following a bomb threat at a library, the university said on its emergency information website.

Bomb-sniffing dogs were on the way, and it was unclear what time the buildings would reopen, the website said. The threat "was received through electronic communications," it said.
