Welcome to Mystic Noank Library’s Chess Club! The club welcomes children grade 3 and up! We will be meeting on Wednesdays after school from 4:30  to 5:30 p.m.

Children should know how the chess pieces move before their first visit. We teach chess strategy, chess sportsmanship, and organize games. 

Sportsman-like conduct is always a goal. Members must be respectful of each other's play, and at the end of each game, win or lose, members must be cordial with one another.
