Scribblers Festival celebrates storytelling in all its forms. Local libraries hold a special place in our work, housing stories for all. 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 2023 Golden Feather Hunt began on Monday 4th of September 2023 and will run until the 27th of October (the night before our Family Festival)! This year, you'll be hunting for white, topaz, silver and gold feathers.
The Golden Feathers were found in The City of Perth Library by Max and Adele, Lakelands Library by Josiah, Nannup Library by Elsie
and in the Dalwallinu Library by Joshua.
These lucky feather hunters were awarded their amazing prizes including an iPad, signed book pack and entry to workshops of their choice during the
Scribblers Festival Free Family Weekend.

We’re hugely thankful to all of the 159 participating libraries across WA who help the Golden Feather Hunt come alive each year. You can use the map below to find one near you!
