Golden Feather

Scribblers Festival is a celebration of the magic and discovery that happens when a child reads a book. We want to encourage young readers to explore the adventures that await them on the shelves of their local libraries.

To help with this we are running a special literary treasure hunt in the lead up to the Festival in May. We have hidden feather-shaped bookmarks (inspired by our Scribblers owl mascot) in children’s and young adult books in public libraries across the State (check to see if your library is listed below).

Among the feathers distributed there are a handful of special ‘Golden Feather’ bookmarks which, when uncovered, will result in a major prize for some lucky readers! Some treasure hunters may also stumble across a silver feather and win a FREE book.
