Future Library is a non-profit devoted to reinforcing the significance of libraries as knowledge, creativity, and interaction-promoting institutions. It was established in Veria in 2011, addressing the call of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to contribute to the development of a sustainable network of public and municipal libraries across Greece.
We are a network of libraries open to everyone. We believe passionately in the power of collaboration. We experiment with new ideas. We do not hesitate to cross disciplines and make links that are “unusual”. These are some of the key ingredients that the library of the future needs to have in order to positively affect our lives.
With hub.futurelibrary.gr we are building a social network through which we promote online learning, information and interaction with all our members. With mentoring and skills development through workshops, seminars and our conference, as well as with access to resources, we support the library community in their effort to offer innovative services.
In Greece and beyond!
We work with libraries from Greece, the Balkans and the rest of Europe. Step by step, we expand our network to other regions. We’re headquartered in Veria – hosted in the award winning Veria Central Public Library – and we also have offices in Athens.
Key donors of the Future Library are: the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the Welfare Foundation for Social and Cultural Affairs, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the European Union (Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Program).
