The Westport Library is offering several free programs for teens this fall, including Fantasy Football for Teens, Tech Hangout and Maker Mondays.

The live draft for the fantasy football league will take place Wednesday, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the McManus Room. Participants draft their own imaginary football team and play against other participants, either alone or in teams, to compete for prizes. The program runs until the football playoffs. The program is for students in grades six through 12. Registration can also be done online.

Thursdays, beginning Sept. 4, there will be drop-in tech fun from 3 to 4 p.m. for those in grades six through 12. Participants will get a chance to try out a new free app, practice coding or play on the library's Minecraft server. Participants should bring a laptop, smartphone or tablet.

Maker Mondays, for students in grades six to nine, will begin Sept. 8 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the lseminar room. Participants will "hang out and geek out" every Monday until Oct. 27. Each session features a different hands-on, creative activity.
