Chess Gang

Robert Bemben & Robin Ray will, again, mentor our chess club, the Chess Gang. The club is open to young people from ages 8 to 18.

Starting September 19, the Gang meets on Mondays from 3:30-5:00 p.m. in the Children’s Program Room. This is a drop-in activity.

The emphasis will be on open chess play with some instruction, with older players assisting younger ones, depending upon their needs. Players of all skill levels are welcome and are encouraged to bring chess sets from home if they have them. Adults interested in assisting should call the library, 231-758-3112.
