4th Floor

Our Vision: The 4th floor is a public laboratory and educational facility with a focus on information, design, technology, and the applied arts. The more than 12,000 sq foot space hosts equipment, expertise, programs, events, and meetings that work within this scope. While traditional library spaces support the consumption of knowledge by offering access to media, the 4th floor is unique because it supports the production, connection, and sharing of knowledge by offering access to tools and instruction.

4th Floor hours:  Monday through Thursday 2pm-8pm and Friday 2-6pm. 

4th Floor launches Chattanooga Zine Library

Radical. Raunchy. Heartfelt. Hardcore. The new Chattanooga Zine Library on the 4th Floor features the best newly published zines from across the country and the UK, as well as hundreds of vintage punk, politcal and personal zines.

Three new releases have some insight on changing the behaviors that make it harder to achieve goals.
