Our mission is to promote chess across Canada. Chess is an excellent game that encourages critical thinking and logical analysis. Many people know the rules of chess but never had the opportunity to play a real game.
As our name implies, Chess in the Library supports chess in public libraries. Members gather each week to play causal and blitz chess games. Players of all ages and strengths are welcome to come and play, although there may be some age limitations at certain libraries. Chess sets and space are provided at each session. Our program has always been and will be free in the future. We want to provide value and service to our local communities.
