Calling chess players of all ages and abilities! We’re inviting everyone to participate in our monthly chess club. This month we have a special treat. Chess master Bob Nasiff will be at BPL to play as many simultaneous games as we can fit into the Community Room. Nasiff is a U.S. Chess Federation certified National Master with many years of experience. This is a great opportunity to learn from the best. We have a limited number of chess sets available if you do not have your own. Registration is recommended.
