Look to Alaska Geographic for the most comprehensive selection of books, maps, and films about Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. As the park’s official nonprofit education partner and bookstore, Alaska Geographic offers an extensive collection of titles on Glacier Bay’s natural and cultural heritage, provides financial support for the park’s interpretive programs and other educational offerings, and works to connect visitors with Alaska’s magnificent wildlands.
Alaska Geographic operates the bookstore in the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve Visitor Center in Gustavus and sells books and merchandise aboard many of the cruise ships that visit Glacier Bay. Every purchase you make at these locations directly benefits Glacier Bay—a portion of every sale supports the park’s educational and interpretive programs.
Alaska Geographic members receive exclusive benefits, including discounts online and at Alaska Geographic bookstores statewide. To find out more, browse our bookstore, or become a member, stop by the Glacier Bay Visitor Center, or visit us online.
