<p>The Lafayette Library is home to the Glenn Seaborg Learning Consortium, a "first-ever" collaboration of some of the Bay Area's most prestigious educational and cultural organizations. Through the Consortium, a wealth of collaborative learning workshops, exhibits, lectures, films and discovery centers are offered. The library also offers free tutoring in all levels of math, physics, chemistry every Tuesday 6-8pm with UC Berkeley Grad students and professional tutors on hand to help kids crunch those numbers. If board strategy is your game, the library hosts a free, monthly open chess club for all ages, all abilities. You can get a lesson, give one, and maybe find yourself up against a Grand Master. To join in the fun, stop by on the third Saturday of the month from 4pm to 5pm.</p>
