Living Chess Game at the Library

Denton, TX

Children can learn the rules of chess by participating in a living chess game to be staged at the North Branch Library. This unique twelve-week program for 9 to 14 year olds will transform participants into singing, dancing chessmen! Dr. Alexey Root, author of Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators and former U.S. Women’s chess champion, will direct the program.

The Living Chess group will meet on Thursdays at 2:30 p.m. beginning September 3. The program will culminate with a performance on November 21. This class is free and open to the public. Space is limited and registration is required.

For more information, contact WyLaina Hildreth, Public Services Librarian, at 940.349.8774 or at
