The Sacramento Bee reports:
A Sacramento-area library was evacuated Monday morning and a nearby elementary school and high school sheltered in place after law enforcement was notified of a bomb threat containing anti-LGBTQ hate speech, authorities said. It was the third threat against the library in the past week, police and deputies said.
Much like the first reported bomb threat made to the library on Aug. 21, Monday’s threat came in an email containing hate speech, police said. The second threat was made late Friday.
The first threat came after an incident at the library in which dozens of people, including protesters, attended a forum on “Fair and Safe Sports for Girls” hosted by the Yolo County chapter of Moms for Liberty. A library official reportedly told a speaker at the event to leave the library after the speaker referred to transgender female youth athletes as “biological males.”

Meanwhile, we have had a second bomb threat in a week, and anti-LGBTQ+ messages, following closely on the heels of a Moms for Liberty event at our public library that did not go as they had hoped. They will use terror threats, or legislation, or try both. https://t.co/7bdbjTT1xn

The Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library has been targeted by bomb threats. These messages share a common thread of hateful content and revolve around a heated meeting there. The Yolo County Sheriff’s Office is investigating these incidents, with the FBI, to identify suspects.
