Leila Hoffman (OAM)

1932-2009

Leila worked as a teacher-librarian or librarian (1974 to 1986).

Leila was the founder of the WA Young Readers’ Book Award. She established a working committee and steered the development for the implementation of the WA Young Readers’ Award (1980).

This is an award where young readers rather than adults nominate and vote on a list of books. It encourages young readers to read books and reward authors. The award is still in operation, almost 30 years later.
