Radon Screening Kits

Marigold Library System, in partnership with the Alberta Lung Association and with support from Health Canada, is excited to announce we now provide Radon Kits for patrons to check out.

According to the Alberta Lung Association, radon is an invisible, odourless, and tasteless radioactive gas which can get trapped in the home. Therefore, the only way to detect how much radon is in your home is to test for it. This is important as long-term exposure to high levels of radon can lead to lung cancer.

Marigold patrons can place holds and check out one of our 18 Radon Kits for three weeks. Kits are intended as an initial screening only, as long-term testing of three months is required to get an accurate average radon level reading in a home. These kits are available from October - April.

Radon Screening Kits can be requested through the TRACpac by searching 'Marigold Radon Detector.'

Test your home's radon levels and complete a short survey for your chance to win your own radon testing kit and some Alberta Lung swag! Alberta Lung will do a draw from each library system's surveys at the end of the rental season (October - April). Enter now for your chance to win!
