February is the month of love, and all month, we've been showcasing loving our tech! This week, we love the tech of tablets and smartphones!

The coming of smartphones and tablets has made us always connected. It's become rather like carrying a huge part of your brain, filled with the collected knowledge of the world, right by your side. Books, videos, music - it's all in there, ready at nearly any time.

And of course, the library works to make your access to these things better than ever, with products like Freegal for music you can download and play even if you're way away from civilization with no cell phone or wifi connection, Overdrive for ebooks and audiobooks, Zinio for magazines, and dozens of databases for looking up factual information, all made available just by having a Beauregard Library card. Many of these products have apps for your phone or tablet to make them even easier to use.
