Casual Chess for Families and Kids

We staff the chess clubs at three local libraries. All of these were stopped during the pandemic, but will slowly be returning. Contact us for details.

Chess for Families and Kids

Tuesdays at 6:00pm at George W. Hawkes Library

Bring the whole family! The club is aimed at kids, families, and adults. Absolute beginners (adults and kids) and a little more experienced players attend. The environment is a great place for young chess players and their families to play some casual games of chess and improve their skills.

Find us upstairs in the Excellence Room.
