Whoa! You know libraries are stepping it up when featured in professional publications for sound recording. Great work, Chattanooga Public Library!

We geek this invitation to #unplug, sundown to sundown, starting this evening!

Please join us and #unplug with your friends, families, and loved ones in support of the National Day of Unplugging! The National Day of Unplugging is an annual... 24-hour period, running from sundown to sundown, of observing a communal digital detox. The goal is to carve out a specific time to unwind, unplug, relax, reflect, get outdoors, and connect with loved ones. It's a valuable opportunity to gain new insight into our personal relationship with technology.

The NDU provides an opportunity for diverse individuals, communities and organizations to join around the common thread of disconnecting from our devices to connect with those things that are truly important in our lives. Join us this weekend, March 9-10, from sundown to sundown as we unplug and connect to the people, places and things that matter. Learn more at
