The Ruth Faulkner Public Library is excited to be participating in the golden feather hunt this year. Within selected young adult and children's books in participating libraries, feather bookmarks can be found (plain, silver and gold). Plain feathers are perfect for decoration and when posted on social media may win you a spot prize; silver feathers win a signed copy of an age appropriate book; and the lucky finder of a golden feather will win an iPad, a VIP pass to Scribbler's Festival and two nights stay in a local hotel with a parent!

The hunt is on! ​Find out more about Scribbler's Festival here and view the competition Terms and Conditions.

We can't wait to see your decorated plain feathers! You can choose to take them home or they can be part of a feather display in the library.
