What people are saying:

I used to come into your bookstore all the time on Princess. Now I live in Tokyo. The sad part about living in Tokyo is that I can't eat at EAT!. I just wanted to congratulate you on your great success with Aqua! It sounds as though things are going really great for you, and the business/thought-fostering centre/restaurant establishment is the thing my dreams are made of. I think that the community that you are helping to foster in Winnipeg is inspiring. If I was still living in Winnipeg, I'd probably never leave your store (provided there's a public bathroom). Anyway, Aqua Books is probably the thing about Winnipeg I miss most. I loved walking from my apartment in the Exchange to your store on the weekends to wither away the hours. It always smelled good in there. Does the Garry St. location smell equally good? I bet it does. - Lauren U., Tokyo


Aqua Books matched all Noah's Bark Social ticket sales made in-store from Jan 16/07 through Feb 3/07. We raised a total of $270 for National Service Dogs, including matching funds from Aqua Books.

From 7-9:30 was family friendly, with two drum shows (Hand Drum Rhythms and insisto), auction, popcorn cart, etc. The dance at 9:30 had a great dj. There was a full bar the whole time. Other than the lack of synchro swimmers, acrobatics, Las Vegas and costuming, it was just like a Cirque show.

Noah is an 8-year-old boy with severe autism. He has difficulties with communication and social interaction, and is a flight risk. This summer, Noah escaped the house and was hit by an SUV. Luckily, he escaped with only a fractured skull and femur and is already out of his wheelchair and on the mend. We need help to make sure this doesn’t happen again. National Service Dogs focuses on providing service dogs to families who have children with autism. These dogs increase safety levels for children with autism and improve children's behaviour and socialization skills by acting as a constant companion and ambassador for the child. It takes $18,000 to raise and train a service dog. NSD is a non-profit registered charity and while National Service Dogs does not require the recipient families to pay for the training, they depend on donations to keep this program viable. Please consider partnering with us to bring new hope and help to Noah.
