Book Awards Seals

Question: I know there are seals libraries can buy for children's books that win awards from the American Library Association. Are there seals I can buy to put on the copies of those books that our library already owns that were named Notable Books for Children?

Answer:  Yes! Seals for most Youth Media Awards (including Caldecott and Newbery), Booklist Editors' Choice, Notable Books, and the Stonewall Book Awards may be purchased in packages of 24 through the ALA Online Store.

Rolls of 1,000 pressure sensitive seals may also be purchased by contacting Pat Connolly, 815-245-1399, or fax your purchase order directly to 815-334-9625; for questions contact Katharine Fronk, 312-280-5275 (fax) or

See ALA Award & Notable Seals for additional details and information.
