Santa Fe Public Library

Youth Chess Club

Posted on

December 8, 2021 @ 5:45 pm – 7:45 pm
Main Library & Online

In-person chess returns to its original schedule at the Main Library at 5:45 p.m. on Wednesdays.  Please come join us in person!  Note that we will also continue broadcasting the lectures online using the Jitsi platform, so students can continue to join that way.  Contact Mark Galassi,, 505-629-0759 (voice only) for more information.

Two components to virtual chess: videocon and online chess site.

  • Videocon: write to and I will send you the information to connect to our chat room chess club: Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. we have a lecture. Then at 6:05 p.m. we start game play, typically inviting other clubs and schools from around the state.

  • Online play: Santa Fe students (pre-K to 12th) should go to and make themselves an account on and join the “santafechess” team.

  • Northern Schools Chess League (and other leagues) described here.


Our mission statement is:

Bringing critical thinking skills to children through the enjoyment of chess. Specifically we try to bring Santa Fe’s school age kids together to play chess.

We also offer instruction, we organize tournaments, and we have simultaneous chess matches with strong local players.
