Pequot Library is offering a four-session Chess Camp this month, where children ages 6 to 14 can learn the game or improve their skills.

Instruction will be offered from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, Jan. 5, 7, 12 and 14. The library said the camp would have a "fun and hands-on approach."

The cost is $50 for all four sessions or $25 for two sessions. Advance registration is required.

The instructor will be Michael Finneran, who the library said was a three-time state high school chess champion.

To register or for more information, call the Pequot Library at 203-259-0346, ext. 18.
