  1. Looking for weekly chess club for him. He is good and very interested.

  2. Hello Laura, That sounds like a great idea. We do have space available for youth that are interested in chess and could make a couple of sets available. Please let me know what you had in mind and if you have had experiences with other libraries hosting chess. Best regards, Librari-Ann

  3. Do you host weekly chess clubs for children
