Young chess players are invited to join a twice-weekly club during July at the Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave.

The chess club, for youngsters 6 to 14 years old, will meet Mondays through Wednesdays all month.

Each session will run from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Players are welcome to attend one session or all of them, library officials said.

Michael Finneran, a college student who won the state high school chess championship three times, will to teach the game and provide guidance on ways to improve. There is no charge, but library officials said donations are welcome.
