Suspicious Package at Temple Library Was Student Project

Whoops! False alarm, everyone! This is the second time in two days this has happened; Penn dorm Kings Court English House was evacuated yesterday in a similar science project situation.

Incidentally, in 2006 Saint Joseph’s University evacuated a building and called police due to a bicycle with a sticker of the band This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb.


A suspicious package has been reported at Paley Library, at 1210 Polett Walk, on Temple’s main campus in North Philly.

This has been quite the rough few days for Temple, with students being attacked late last week.

Photos on Twitter show students clustered outside.

More on this as it develops.
