Material Loans
Radon Testing Kit
Radon occurs naturally when uranium breaks down to form radon. Uranium is often found in high concentrations in granite rocky soils, as are common in northern Georgia counties. As radon is released into the soil, it can enter buildings through the foundation and well water, eventually building to dangerous levels. Radon is one of the leading causes of cancer in Georgia. Through our partnership with the UGA Extension, library users can check out a kit to test for radon in their homes. For more information about the Radon Project, visit the University of Georgia Extension website.
