Golden Feather Hunt

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 2021 Golden Feather Hunt has finished, however stay tuned because this July, thousands more feathers will make their way to a library near you. Listed below are the participating libraries of 2021. If your local library isn’t on the list, speak to your librarian about getting involved. There are plenty of feathers to share around!

What to do if you find a feather?

First tell your librarian that you have found a Gold or Silver Feather.

To claim your prize your parent/guardian needs to contact us on and let us know which feather you have found and the library you found it at. We would love it if you shared a photo of you and your feather on social media.
