CSC believe that chess
and libraries are an excellent fit. Chess
has a huge number of books written about it
- a recent search of Amazon produced over
19,000 results. By running a regular chess
club at your library you would be providing
a great service to your community.
provide equipment and help you
find someone to run it. We run
regular training courses on
teaching chess which would equip
someone with the skills to run a
club. Places on the courses
would be free to library staff
and volunteers and we would
provide support. We will fund a
Disclosure and Barring Service
(DBS) – formerly the CRB or
Criminal Record Bureau - check
for the person running the club.
Your library would also
have free access to the Yes2Chess programme
- a secure online chess club.
We would also be very
happy to provide our curriculum for you to
stock in your catalogue and workbooks for
the children to use.
