Anode is the design studio behind FireSign that combines technology and creativity into the engaging new experiences that your audiences have come to expect.
Provide patrons with accurate, up-to-the-minute information using automated schedules for all your library programming. FireSign integrates with calendar management systems such as Evanced and Bedework to create hands-off digital signage that reduces the burden on your staff.
Is your library facility complex or recently renovated? FireSign offers touchscreen applications that guide your patrons to every corner of your facility. Our online tools allow you to update interactive maps and upload walking directions to all your locations and events.
The support of your service population is crucial to sustaining and growing your library. FireSign helps you solicit both financial and volunteer support through dynamic images, text and videos that communicate your needs with visual impact.
Bring your archived or special collections to the forefront through interactive exhibits that allow patrons to explore first editions, manuscripts or recorded assets in amazing detail. Touchscreen applications are a great way to optimize your small or underutilized spaces by showcasing a vast number of items in a minimal footprint.
Share stories about your community through engaging exhibits that bring landmarks, historical figures and past events back to life. When your exhibits are powered by our FireSign platform, you have access to web-based tools for updating your existing exhibits or creating entirely new exhibits at any time. Collaborate with your entire staff to create rotating exhibits that keep patrons coming back to learn more.
Our team works with architects, exhibit designers, fabricators, curators and librarians to address the unique needs of public libraries, academic institutions and cultural centers. By merging creativity and technology, we create experiences that keep your library relevant with today's media savvy patrons. Our deliberate, strategic approach to integrating interactive media into your library environment helps you attract patrons, grow circulation and create life-long learners in the community.
