Fantasy Football 101

There are still openings for our #FantasyFootball101 class happening on July 31st at 7pm.

To succeed in fantasy football, you will need the business shrewdness of a general manager, the knowledge of a pro scout, and the strategy of a head coach. Fantasy football allows you to compose and control your own team of NFL players. Learn the fundamentals of the game and discover where you can play different types of fantasy football to compete against friends and/or strangers.

Football, Football, Football!

footballs on a fieldFootball season is here! At least that’s what the radio tells me. This morning while I was sitting in traffic, I quickly noticed that every single station was discussing opening weekend, speculating on how the Texans will do this season, or finalizing fantasy football teams. I admit, this wasn’t my favorite thing to listen to during my commute, but it did get me thinking about movies. I may not be the world’s (or even the library’s) biggest football fan, but I do like good football movies. They make me think of fall and marching bands, team spirit and hot dogs, and standing on the bleachers at

college, cheering on my team.

If you are in the mood for a football flick, browse the HCPL catalog and request a movie today!

Glory on the Gridiron

It's hard to tell summer is soon coming to an end. The trees are still green, the weather is still hot, and the pool still beckons. Regardless, we know autumn is fast approaching because that great American tradition is back again - football. Yes, dust off those shoulder pads, shoes, and helmets for another exciting season. Or maybe you'd rather pull up a chair next to the TV.  Whether you're a participant or a fan, these books will help you get into the spirit of the game.
