Some of the town's elementary schools have chess clubs. These are huge successes where children laugh, play, and learn chess with wild abandon. Undoubtedly you've been hearing the buzz while having a romantic dinner at Chez Albert or getting your morning joe at Amherst Coffee. The town is all atwitter about the grand, well pint-sized actually, chessmasters swaggering the halls of your local elementary schools every. single. day. Classmates want to know them, teachers want to be them.
Maybe you know a child who just can't get enough of chess? Maybe you know a child who's never tried chess and wants to check it out? Oh boy do the Friends of the Jones Library have a program for your kid!
