Radon Detector Library Loan Program

You can borrow a digital radon detector from your local library!

LANS (Lung Association of Nova Scotia), with funding from Health Canada, has partnered with public libraries across the province to offer radon test kits via your local library. Each regional library system in Nova Scotia has been provided with kits for free public loan, complete with instructions and fact sheets.

Place a hold on the kits available in Cumberland County: https://cpl.catalogue.library.ns.ca/Record/1455364
