Your Move, Mate

The Westport Public Library thinks of everything.

In the main area there’s now a chess table — with men.

A sign invites library-goers to make a move or two — or for 2 to play together.

It’s the continuing nature of the game that’s so intriguing.  People make moves throughout the day — quietly, unobtrusively, anonymously.

Another sign indicates whose move is next (White, around noon yesterday).

I’m not sure who will bask in the glory when the game ends with checkmate.

But that’s probably not the idea, is it?
