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:  
Tuesday through Thursday 2pm-8pm 

Friday + Saturday 12pm-6pm. 

For questions or equipment reservations please call 423-757-4750 or email Mary Barnett : Reservations can also be made in person by visiting the space during regular operating hours.
