Beginner Lessons operate in a 12-week cycle. Participants will master chess basics, including how pieces move; maneuvering the board; applying chess terms such as castling; and the stages of play.
All ages are welcome, but HCC recommends a minimum age of six years old, and the ability to work independently.
All chess lessons at Hingham Public Library are free. To help offset the costs of funding the program, a suggested donation of $10 per lesson is gratefully accepted by Hingham Chess Club, yet not required. Through their partnership with the Hingham Public Library, HCC is also the recipient of a grant generously provided by the Harold and Avis Goldstein Trust.

Joe and Ravi might be from very different places, but they're both stuck in the same place: SCHOOL. Joe's lived in the same town all his life, and was doing just fine until his best friends moved away and left him on his own. Ravi's family just moved to America from India, and he's finding it pretty hard to figure out where he fits in. Joe and Ravi don't think they have anything in common -- but soon enough they have a common enemy (the biggest bully in their class) and a common mission: to take control of their lives over the course of a single crazy week. For students in 4th & 5th grade. Registration is not required but appreciated. Registration is available online or please call the children's department at 781-741-1405, ext. 1403.
