Learn to knit or crochet at your neighborhood library this coming fall. Or play fantasy football.
The North Oak Cliff Library holds a fantasy football league draft from 2-3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30. There’s no betting, and it’s free to join. The group will meet several times throughout the season, and a prize, courtesy of the North Oak Cliff Public Library Friends, will be given to the winner.
Librarian Ray Sablack says the library’s staff was batting around ideas for adult programs, and a new employee, library associate Cade Holmes, came up with the fantasy football league idea.
The library also hosts “Club de Crochet,” for knitters and crocheters of any age and experience, from 4-5 p.m. Fridays. The club will move its meeting to 11 a.m. Saturdays starting in September.
But wait, there’s more. The library also has a coupon club that meets from 2-3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23. Sablack says a group of about 10 couponers usually show up to swap coupons.
The library hosts preschool story time and baby bounce at 10:15 a.m. every Friday.
More programs are being added in September, including GED, ESL, recipe exchanges and after school programs.
