Want to play fantasy football this fall? The Brookfield Public Library has a league ready for you. Yes, a library is sponsoring a fantasy football league. It's the idea of Frank Murray, the head of reference and electronic services at the Brookfield Public Library. The fantasy football league is just one of the "bro-grams" that Murray has created to reach out to men.
Once again at the forefront of technology, the Brookfield Public Library is the first library in the area to purchase a 3-D printer. The printer takes computer designs and turns them into real physical three-dimensional objects. Chicago's Harold Washington Library recently purchased three 3-D printers, and a few larger suburban libraries have also purchased them.
