Scribblers Festival celebrates creativity, literacy and the special place local libraries hold in the hearts of children and parents. With the help of our librarian superheroes, each year we hide over 15,000 feather shaped bookmarks in the children’s and young adult section of libraries across Western Australia. Feather finders have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, but most of all, fuel their love of reading and libraries.
Our 2022 Golden Feather Hunt is now on!
How To Start Your Hunt:
1. Check out the list below of all the fabulous libraries participating. With over 150 libraries across WA involved, there is bound to be one near you
2. Visit library
3. Go the children's or young adult section and select a book you would like to borrow.
4. Check out the book with the help of your friendly librarian
5. Cross your fingers and open the book...
6. If there is a feather-shaped bookmark inside do a (quiet) victory dance and bring the feather to your friendly librarian who will know exactly what to do next
7. If there isn't a feather-shaped bookmark inside, chin up - you still have a great book to read AND you can have another hunt when you borrow your next book!
