The Chris & Kathleen Koch AACA Library & Research Center is free and open to the public during our regular hours of operation. While visiting the library you can view any of our books or look at specific information regarding one of your cars or maybe just an automobile topic that you are interested in. For those of you that can’t make it out to the library in person, we offer off-site research available to anyone who is interested to be completed by library staff.

If you are interested in off-site research, please fill in the Research Request Form below as completely as possible. We will search our collection and then contact you with a list of available information and the applicable fees. We aim to reply to each request within 1 business week, but during busy times of the year it can take 2-4 weeks or longer to complete your request – we appreciate your patience! Shipping is fulfilled via the US Postal Service only.
