Chess in Libraries

 A number of clubs in the North Staffs and District Chess Association have launched a project to introduce chess sets and the playing of the game into their local libraries. It was begun by Nigel Hancock of Alsager Chess Club  to use the opportunities available from Chess in Schools and Communities to further his local library initiative. This has now extended to four libraries and two NSDCA Clubs. This is seen as a contribution to reducing the problem of loneliness in the older generations.

This is a great initiative and it is suggested that clubs in other Staffordshire areas should join in.
