John Speck Memorial Library

Visit and browse Our Library

The John Speck Memorial Library consists of one the nation's largest collections of mountaineering books, guides, pamphlets, and journals. It also contains materials related to the Club’s history, and serves as an archive for other Club records. The library's contents are currently in storage, however we are excited about developing prospects of the future installation in an easily accessible location for club members.


For all inquiries, please contact the CMC Librarian.
