Advanced Lessons are drop-in and focus on strategy and board development; applying more advanced chess terminology; and preparing for competition.
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.

A young adult’s first exposure to credit is often obtaining student loans to pay for their college education. These loans can impact their lives for decades. Therefore, it is important to understand the costs, risks, and benefits. This seminar will provide a basic understanding of personal credit, credit scores, types of student loans, and basic student loan facts and tips for avoiding student loan repayment traps. We hope parents and students will attend together, thereby fostering open communication on funding college.
