The Scribblers Festival Golden Feather Treasure Hunt kicked off in libraries across the state in early March as part of the inaugural Scribblers Festival, a new initiative that encourages children to utilise the wide range of literature available at local libraries and to encourage them to use their imagination in storytelling.
Until 13 May 2018 feather-shaped bookmarks will be hidden in children’s books at participating libraries across WA.
The Five Golden Feather bookmarks will carry prizes such as an iPad, stays at local hotels, VIP passes to attend the Scribblers Festival functions and customised book packages.
The 20 Silver Feather bookmarks will win runner-up prizes for their finders, and other feathers can be painted and decorated to win spot prizes.
The Scribblers Festival has been strongly supported by the City of Rockingham and all the City’s libraries will participate.
Deputy Mayor Deb Hamblin said the Golden Feather Treasure Hunt was a wonderful initiative that would encourage young people to use and benefit from the City’s extensive library services.
“Our libraries are a fantastic resource for people of all ages and we are particularly keen for our kids to benefit from the huge array of educational and recreational material they offer,” Cr Hamblin said.
“Reading opens a whole new world for young people and often gives them joy for the rest of their lives. The City is delighted to join with the Scribblers Festival and hopefully some of our local kids here will hit the jackpot.”
