Library Hosting Fantasy Football League

Arlington Central LibraryAre you ready for some football? The Arlington Public Library is and it’s inviting residents to join its first fantasy football league.

Residents can sign up to compete against neighbors in the library’s “Dewey Decimators League.” Participants must attend a Fantasy Football 101 class at Central Library on Monday, August 18. From 6:00-7:00 p.m. class attendees will learn how to use the free Yahoo! Fantasy Football program to create a team.

That Saturday (August 23) is the big draft day. From 1:00-2:00 p.m., registered participants will draft their players either in person at Central Library or online.

League participants can build a team on their own or co-own a team with others. Individual participants must be at least 13 years old.

Those who attend the August 18 introductory class will hear more about the smaller prizes to be awarded throughout the season, from places like Bayou Bakery, Corner Bakery, Dunkin Donuts, Sweet Leaf and Starbucks. The league runs through December 22 and the winner will get a grand prize that has not yet been announced.
