Annual Chess Tourney

Ligonier Valley students in grades K - 8 are invited to participate in the annual Chess Tournament being held at the Ligonier Valley Library on Saturday, March 21st at 10:30 am.

Pre-registration is required and can be done either at the library or over the phone. The registration deadline is 4:00 pm, Friday, March 20, 2009. The tournament is limited to students in the Ligonier Valley Library Service area.

For more details, visit the "What's Happening for Kids" website...

Whether or not you can participate in our tourney, you can still learn to play chess or at the very least understand what it's all about. Below are some book suggestions that might not make you the next Fisher King, but may help you hold your own.

  • Checkmate! : the game of chess by Greg Roza
  • Chess for Success by Maurice Ashley
  • Chess : from first moves to checkmate by Daniel King
  • Chess Fundamentals by Jose Capablanca
  • The Complete Idiots Guide to Chess by Patrick Wolff
  • The Immortal Game by David Shenk
  • Learn Chess Fast by Raymond Keene

Not all of the titles belong to the Ligonier Valley Library, but we can get them for you through our system. Let us know if you need any help.
