Welcome to the American Alpine Club Library: Preserving the History and Culture of Climbing

AAC Members: login using the same email and password combination you use for the AAC's main website. If you are having difficulty logging in, please contact the library. Unfortunately our member database does not always sync with the library catalog. Once we change your password, you should then be able to log in to the library catalog.

Use the "Place Hold" button to request library materials. We'll ship your requests to you free of charge. We process requests three times per week and will ship all available items within a few days of your request. If the items you request are currently checked out, your request will be added to a queue, and the items will ship when they become available.

The check out period is 28 days. Items can be renewed for an additional 28 days provided they have not been requested by another member. When you are done with the items simply ship them back using the return label provided. Instructions will be enclosed with your shipment.

Please email or call us if you need further assistance!
