If the game of chess is something you might be interested in learning, the Perry Public Library has an upcoming program.

The Chess For Everyone: Beginners and Beyond will be starting December 15th from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Library Director Mary Murphy hopes this program will become a weekly event. 

“We hope that Wednesday afternoons will be chess time for anybody who wants to come in and play chess. We did this with bridge a couple years ago and we taught the basics of bridge.”

Murphy tells Raccoon Valley Radio the classes will be taught by David Oliveira who will introduce the game to everyone and teach them how to play. Murphy encourages everyone to attend. 

“Even if you don’t know anything about chess and just want to learn how to play the game, please come. It looks like it is going to be a good time.”

There is no cost to attend the club and there will be an opportunity to sign up for a weekly event at the first meeting. For more information on the chess club you can go here.
