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 25 years. We are located on the Trans-Canada Highway in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and are just 20 minutes away from the Calgary International Airport. We have our own parking lot at the rear of the store and additional parking is close by if needed. Our office hours are Monday to Saturday 10:30 - 5:30 and other times by appointment. We are flexible in this and there is often staff in the store from 9-6 Monday to Saturday but please call ahead if you plan to stop by outside of regular office hours. Our street address is: 826 16th Ave N.W. Calgary, AB T2M 0J9.
