WALLINGFORD – The Wallingford Public Library was evacuated Thursday afternoon after a bomb threat was emailed to the library.
Officers responded to the library, 200 N. Main St., about 1:30 p.m. The building was evacuated for approximately 30 minutes before police determined that the threat “didn’t appear credible.”
Police learned the email was part of a wave of bomb threats nationwide. Public Institutions and businesses across Connecticut and the country were targeted.
According to police, the Connecticut Food Bank on Research Parkway, Pearce Real Estate on North Main Street and Eagle Elevator on North Plains Industrial Road all received similar threats.
