The Iowa Association of School Librarians, a subdivision of the Iowa Library Association, is proud to promote literacy and learning through our awards. 

IASL sponsors four book awards, representing the different ages of our readers.  Goldfinch is for our youngest readers, in grades K-2.  Iowa Children's Choice Award is for readers in grades 3-6.  Iowa Teen Award is for readers in grades 6-9. and the Iowa High School Book Award is for readers in grades 9-12.   Voting for these awards takes place in March and the winners are announced at our spring conference in April.

In addition to our book awards, we recognize a variety of people who help forward our mission.
