Important Notice: Library & School Closings

The Peoria Public Library closed its doors to patrons until April 7th in an effort to stymie the spread of the coronavirus.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker ordered the closing of every school in the state until April 8th. Currently, normal operations will resume on April 8th.

This, of course, means that all chess after school programs are cancelled until April 8th. See your chess coach for concerns about private lessons.
