The Iowa Association of School Librarians (IASL)) sponsors four book awards (Goldfinch Award, Iowa Children’s Choice Award, Teen Award, and Iowa High School Book Award) representing the different ages of PK-12 readers.

Schools should have received a  paper copy of the IASL Award Book Order form on the van. You can also download the electronic order form from the PermaBound website. Click on the Northwest AEA icon to make sure you are using the correct order form.

This year’s bid was awarded to Perma-Bound. Northwest AEA will once again support the purchase of these award books, by paying 50% of the purchase price. That purchase price is already reflected on this order form, so it won’t be necessary to invoice Northwest AEA. Simply pay the price on the order form. This year we are requesting that all orders be completed by May 31, so Northwest AEA can pay the invoice before our fiscal year ends. If you have questions or this presents difficulties for you, please contact me.

Perma-Bound will provide FREE standard cataloging and processing. If library services are required, please be sure to set up your specs on or call Customer Service at (800) 637-6581. Perma-Bound also provides FREE shipping. Order by March 1 to guarantee availability and a May 17th ship date. You'll also receive a FREE poster with each set purchased if you order by March 1st.
