    Chess Club

    OK, let’s open with the classic Pawn to King’s Knight Four, then pause on the ancient board of battle to proclaim that the WMK branch of your Austin Public Library system welcomes all citizens to learn how to play chess – against other humans! Discover a world of arcane strategy on a tabletop, socialize with like-minded gamesters, and never mind the AlphaZero as you happily hone your critical thinking skills. Note: Ages 10 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. – Wayne Alan Brenner
