Thank You to our Futures Lab members!

Thank you to members of our Futures Lab Steering Committee and our Champions for all the work they have done over the last two years to get this project started.

We would like to especially thank our departing volunteers:

Steering Committee

  • Amélie Harbec, Bibliothèques Montreal
  • Ryan Jamieson, Coquitlam Public Library
  • Genevieve Luthy, Calgary Public Library


  • Magnus Berg, Kingstong Frontenac Public Library
  • Robin Fribance, Richmond Hill Public Library
  • Luke Reid,

The Futures Lab is looking for new volunteers!

We are recruiting for both the Steering Committee and the Champions.

The Futures Lab helps CULC/CBUC libraries continue to remain relevant and resilient in an uncertain world.

We focus on looking forward, to monitor, assess and elevate the key issues, trends and pressures that could potentially shape the futures of libraries. The insights, tools and skills that the Futures Lab delivers will empower libraries to create change where they are at and become better prepared to manage whatever comes their way in the future.

The outcomes of this work will support sustainable and collective long-term success in the public library sector.
