Chess Lessons Program at the James V. Brown Library
We will resume our James V. Brown Library chess program on Thursday, January 26. We’ll meet from 6:00-7:30 in the Lowry room on the 3rd floor of the Welch Children’s Wing.

Club members, please share this information with anyone you know who might have an interest in learning to play the Royal Game. While the participants in the Library program are mostly children from ages 6-16, the program is open to adults as well, especially those who are “young in heart”!
