Aquila Books was started in 1984 in the basement of my home. Since then Aquila has grown, and we have now maintained a retail shop for over 20 years. We are located on the Trans-Canada Highway in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and are just 20 minutes away from the Calgary International Airport. If you are traveling west to the Canadian Rockies through Calgary, you can easily stop in at our shop. We have our own parking lot at the rear of the store and additional parking is close by if needed. We are open Saturday 10:30 - 4:00 and Monday to Friday by appointment only. We are flexible in this and there is often staff in the store from 9:30-5:30 Monday to Friday but please call ahead and make an appointment if you wish to stop by Monday to Friday. Our street address is: 826 16th Ave N.W. Calgary, AB T2M 0J9.
