Age Group: 
Adult

The Library is interested in beginning a chess club for children. We need parents and other interested adults or teens to help us get a chess club started. This program will teach you about the game and give you the skills to teach it to others. We hope that this program will inspire volunteers to begin a weekly or bi-weekly chess club here.  This program will be hosted by Michael Kusen, a chess master and author. He belongs to Chess for Teachers.  This program is intended for families, and children who attend must be in Kindergarten and up.
