Library outreach template
Dear [insert library name/library contact],
I am a resident of [insert town/city/location] who is very eager to see carbon dioxide (CO2) monitors available for loan through this library system. Proper ventilation of indoor spaces is one way to improve indoor air quality, which is a crucial public health measure, and CO2 monitors can help to assess the ventilation of occupied spaces. Demand for tools to help people improve or monitor indoor air quality has increased dramatically over the last 3 years, and CO2 monitors are an excellent, innovative tool to add to any "library of things."
I have connected with Community Access to Ventilation Information (CAVI) which is a registered not-for-profit organization that has successfully supported the introduction of CO2 monitors for loan through public libraries across Canada (see here, as an example: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/toronto-public-library-carbon-dioxide-monitor-lending-program-1.6520063). They are CC'd in this email here to keep them in the loop of our conversation, in case you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing back from you and further discussing how we can introduce innovative, health-equity-geared tools to my local library.
