Looking for a fun way to spend time with family and learn a new skill together?
The Houston-Love Memorial Library is hosting its first installment of brain games for the community.
Chess instructors with the U.S. Chess Federation teach classes for beginners and intermediate players.
People can either receive a lesson or play a friendly match with other players.
The chess classes are free and open to all ages.
"For kids its wonderful because they're not in front of video games playing, they're actually sitting quietly playing a game that requires them to think. It develops logical thinking which is very important in life,” says Joseph Emery, Chess Instructor at Selma St. Elementary School.
Classes are held at Houston-Love Memorial Library every Sunday from 2:00 – 5:00pm.
