YOUNG book lovers can now hunt for feather shaped bookmarks scattered through WA libraries as part of the 2019 Scribbler’s Festival.

The literature and arts festival, organised by cultural non-profit FORM and the Town of Claremont, will be held from May 11 and 12 at The Goods Shed in Claremont.

White, silver and gold feathers have been hidden throughout libraries including Bayswater, Maylands and Morley.

Those who find the feathers have a chance to win prizes including signed books, VIP passes to the festival and iPads.

Children who find a white feather can decorate it and share it on social media for the chance to win a spot prize.

Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull encouraged children to explore their local libraries and take part in the competition.

“The City’s three libraries offer so much more than just books,” he said.

“From kids craft and baby rhymetime sessions right through to adult cooking and e-learning sessions there really is something for everyone to enjoy, and it’s all free to access.

“Now is the perfect time to sign up to your local library and start making the most of the huge range of events, programs and resources on offer, and keep an eye out for a feather bookmark while you’re at it.”
