HMPL Open Chess Day

The Henderson Library hosts open chess days every Sunday from 1-5 pm. We have the chess sets, you bring a friend! We encourage kids and adults of all ages to join us each week for stimulating chess play, whether you are a beginner or a master. 

Playing chess every day has shown to improve mental and emotional health and well-being. This practice also enhances critical skills such as problem-solving and patience. Playing chess every day improves self-confidence, brain health, memory, and can potentially increase a player's intellectual wellness over time.

Every autumn, the library hosts the Ashtabula County Chess Tournaments open to grades k-12  and adult players.
