I am proud to announce that my letter addressing the important issue of indoor air quality in New York Public Library branches was published on 1/13/2023 in The Riverdale Press. In this letter, I highlight the dangers of poor indoor air quality, particularly during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and call for the city to install air filtration units in library branches to protect the health and safety of patrons and staff. I also suggest piloting different types of air filters in select branches to determine the most effective and cost-efficient option for the library system.

I believe that clean indoor air in public spaces is crucial for public health and accessibility. I encourage visitors of this site to read my letter on The Riverdale Press website, and join me in advocating for safer and healthier indoor environments in our communities.
