Future Library is a non-profit organization funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundationwhich aims to develop a sustainable network of public and municipal libraries to act as unique hubs for creativity, innovation and learning across Greece.
Over the last two years, Future Library with the collaboration of Google, Aarchus City Library and the Mozilla Foundation have been working on the creation of Media Labs in nine public libraries to reinforce their significance as knowledge, creativity and interaction-promoting centres. Within a Media Lab, people can get immersed in a range of creative activities such as producing a video, recording a song, creating a digital story and accessing exclusive digital content in an attractive and comfortable space. Library staff, trained by Future Library, support these activities by creating new youth-oriented services and working with people and organizations across their region.
