Who We Are

Chess in the Library is a student volunteer-run program.

As its name implies, the program is about playing chess in public libraries, where the environments are quiet and surrounded by books of knowledge. Members gather each week to play causal chess, blitz, and CFC rated games. Players of all ages and strengths are welcome to come and play, chess sets are provided.

The purpose of this program is to promote the magnificent game of chess across Canada.
