RADON TEST KITS @ THE LIBRARY
Radon is an odorless radioactive gas that is naturally present in the soil and due to the unique geology in our area it is predicted to be more abundant. Exposure to radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer the EPA estimates that approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths per years are caused by radon.
Testing is cheap and easy. To encourage people to test their homes, the Bayfield County Health Department is offering a free radon test kit to residents...and you can pick one up at the Forest Lodge Library! Homes with high radon levels can be fixed for a reasonable price.
The test is short term, it takes only 48-72 hours. Directions are in each package, and we'll be happy to share a sheet of Radon Facts provided for us by the Health Dept. They instruct you to place the kit on the lowest livable floor of your home, meaning your basement if you spend a lot of time there. After the allotted time, mail the test in the envelope provided. The only cost to you is postage and a reasonable lab fee. ($10) You'll receive your results within 2-3 weeks of when your kit is mailed to the lab.
We've got a dozen of 'em...come get yours!

21st Century Skills 2014
We are long past the dawn of the internet age. With each passing year, access to more resources and services is moved on-line. 21st Century essentials like an email address and internet navigational know-how are minimum basic requirements to accomplish just about anything.
In a continuation of a program begun in 2013, the Forest Lodge Library will offer 21st Century Skills classes on the first Saturday of every month, for an hour, right after the library closes for the day. (3:00 most of the year, 4:00 in summer months.) Need some help figuring out how to check out library ebooks on your device? Need some help configuring or updating your device? Need to set up an email address and learn some internet navigation basics, or interested in learning how to post your photos to Facebook? We can help with any and all of that!
Classes are “open format” so feel welcome to bring your device…or any questions you have…to any session. Public access computers will also be available for patron use. Yulia Welk functions as “instructor” and she is a skilled, knowledgeable and patient human being!
There is no need to register for these classes, just show up. There is no charge for participate.
There's something delicious at the library!
