Home equipment additions to Library of Things

Photo of two handheld pieces of equipment. On the left is a black thermal imaging camera; on the right is a gray radon detector.We have recently expanded our Library of Things collection to include these new pieces of equipment:

  • Thermal imaging camera – patron request!
    Detect hot and cold leaks, HVAC, animal, electrical or components behind walls, and more with this compact handheld thermal camera.
  • Radon detector
    Take readings of the radon levels from one room to another in order to get an overview of the concentrations of radon in a home. The LCD screen displays the average daily, weekly and long term concentrations.

Library of Things items are available for holds and checkouts to CAPL cardholders. Some items are only available to patrons ages 18+ due to safety concerns and/or replacement cost of the item. Most items checkout for 1 week and are renewable once if no holds are pending.
