New American Alpine Club Library Book Club starting in Vermont

Our focus is to discuss mountaineering literature, new and old, covering the world’s mountains.

Before our first meeting! – Please email me a list of three books you’d like to suggest we read. I’ll collate these suggestions and bring them to the meeting.

First meeting – Wednesday, February 22nd, 7pm, at the Carpenter Carse Library, 69 Ballards Corner, Hinesburg, VT 05461

(Some folks have indicated they may not be able to make this meeting but are still interested in future meetings.)

Agenda/Goals (this first meeting will be organizational in nature, all you need to read is this email!)


Who we are

How we became interested in mountain books

What we’ve enjoyed reading

Where we find our books

Do you consider yourself a collector or casual reader?


Decide on what to read, perhaps select first three titles

Decide on frequency of meetings (monthly?)

Select next date options (will need to confirm with Library)

(Please send me other thoughts you may have for our agenda. Thanks!)

Library rules – Non-alcoholic drinks are okay.

We should remove our own trash. (Leave no trace!)

The library has just installed a new carpet so they’d like to keep it as clean as possible.

I plan to arrive about 6:45pm to set up tables and chairs.

Feel free to forward this announcement to anyone you think may be interested. I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

Cheers, Greg
