Golden Feather Hunt on at Pilbara libraries
Young people across the Pilbara could strike gold at selected libraries with the hunt on to find feathers in books for children and young adults.
From now until May 12, feather-shaped bookmarks will be hidden in books in participating libraries across WA, including at Onslow, Pannawonica, Paraburdoo and Tom Price.
The Golden Feather Hunt, is being held in the lead-up to the Scribblers Festival.
The literature and arts festival for young people, aims to celebrate the joy of reading and encourage children to explore their library bookshelves.
Scribblers Festival director Katherine Dorrington said a lucky few children would find silver feathers between pages of books, which would enable them to grab some fantastic prizes, including signed copies of books.
“The most precious feathers of all are the five golden feather bookmarks,” she said.
“These have been carefully placed in a few special libraries across the State and the children who find them will win an iPad and a VIP pass to the 2019 Scribblers Festival Family Weekend.”
Last year a golden feather was found in Paraburdoo, while silver feathers were discovered in South Hedland and Newman.
Children can also win prizes by decorating their feathered finds and sharing photographs of them on social media in the lead-up to the festival.
The festival will be held in Claremont on May 11 and 12 with accommodation in Perth included for regional winners.
