CHATHAM COUNTY, Ga. (WSAV) – Wednesday afternoon the Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) evacuated the Islands Library branch after a potential threat was phoned into the library.
Police say the caller made a statement that caused CCPD officers enough concern that they decided to evacuate and close the building out of an abundance of caution.
Explosive-sniffing dogs completed a search and nothing was found.
The building was re-opened early Wednesday evening.
The library is serving as a polling place for early voting.
