ACPL Chess Club

Sixteen people attended the first meeting of the ACPL All Ages Chess Club on Saturday. It was a good turnout, with a range of ages represented. But we need MORE!

The AAACC meets every Saturday at the Main Library from 10 am to 12 noon, unless the library is closed for a holiday or a weather-related emergency. Usually, we're in Meeting Room C; however, when that room is needed for another special event, we meet in Young Adults' Services on the second floor. Use our equipment (chess sets, boards, and clocks) or bring your own.

One of the suggestions we had at our first meeting was to have some kind of club competition, like a tournament or club ladder. Once we hit summer, we'll very likely start something like that. We're also thinking about having special instruction for beginners on one Saturday a month.

Hope you can join us!
