Bienvenue aux Échecs dans la Bibliothèque! Nous vous donnons la chance d'apprendre, de jouer, et d'apprécier d'échecs depuis 2009!
Chess in the Library is a student volunteer-run program.
As our name implies, Chess in the Library supports chess in public libraries. Members gather each week to play causal and blitz chess games. Players of all ages and strengths are welcome to come and play, although there may be some age limitations at certain libraries. Chess sets and space are provided at each session. Our program has always been and will be free in the future.
Chess in the Library is able to promote chess and provide free programs and tournaments for children, youth, and adults due to your donations!
