Located on the 4th Floor of the Chattanooga Public Library's Downtown location (1001 Broad Street), the 4th Floor is a creative space, filled with couches, 3D printers, computers, and friendly staff ready to help you do amazing things. 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.
