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

Issues logging in?

If you are having trouble logging in, contact the library at library@americanalpineclub.org or call 303-384-0112.

The main AAC database is currently not communicating with our online catalog. If you need to make any changes to your account, like updating your mailing address, you will have to contact the library directly.

First-time users will have to contact the library directly as we will have to manually sync data from you AAC profile to your library account before you will be able to log in.



Planning on checking out books online?

Use the "Get it Now!" button and then confirm on the next page by clicking 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 35 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!
