Taichung Public Library, Taiwan
To promote a reading culture, Taichung Public Library has integrated forty-three branches since the municipal merge of the Taichung City and County in 2016. The resources covering through each regional library not only encourage friendly reading environments, but also create satisfying experiences for all visitors.
Taichung Public Library has four main goals, which includes promoting citizens’ reading habits, enriching library collections, renovating interior spaces, and constructing new buildings. By adding digital signage into a diverse learning environment, CAYIN’s players and content management software solution played important roles in the collaboration.

After evaluating several popular options on the market, the library administration adopted forty-seven digital signage players and content management software, with the addition of SuperMonitor to manage and control the platform across all branches of the library.
The Client/Server framework supports the main library in distributing content displayed on each player. CMS device was installed within the server room in the main library while signage players were placed at lobbies of each branch.

When Technology Meets Library
Digital Signage can:
- Provide visitors with useful information including business hours, latest ongoing activities, and important rules and policies for patrons.
- Autoloop digital posters to show a variety of activities, while replacing traditional paper-print materials.
- Form an inbound marketing platform which attracts visitors’ attention, building an efficient and reader-friendly environment.
