Scribblers Festival – Family Program 8-9 May 2021

Scribblers Festival celebrates creativity, literacy and the special place that local libraries hold in the hearts of children and parents. Over the last two years, with the help of our librarian superheroes, we have hidden over 25,000 feather bookmarks in children’s and young adult books across Western Australia. Feather finders won a variety of prizes, but most of all, fueled their love of reading and libraries.

This year’s Family Program is a chance to hear authors speak, attend workshops, and more, download the schedule now.

Relics Exhibition – 26 February to 30 May 2021

The RELICS Exhibition is an immersive exhibition by LEGO Masters Series 2 Winners Jackson Harvey & Alex Towler.

The year is 2530. Humans have long since left planet Earth. After mistreating the natural environment for centuries, they were forced to seek a new home beyond the stars. What remains is little more than an abandoned pile of decaying infrastructure, appliances, and a scattered population of LEGO minifigs.

Golden Feather Hunt on now until 7 May 2021

In the lead up to the Scribblers Festival in May, the festival organisers have hidden feather-shaped bookmarks (inspired by the Scribblers owl mascot) in children’s and young adult books in public libraries across the State – including in all Cockburn Libraries.

Our 2021 Golden Feather Hunt has officially begun! Running through to 7 May 2021, see if your local library is participating below. Will you be the lucky finder of one of the following feathers?

  • 15,000 White Feathers ready for decorating and the chance to win a Spot Prize;
  • 20 Silver Feathers fetching a Book Prize;
  • 5 Golden Feathers winning a VIP Scribblers Festival experience, an iPad, and more;
  • And a special Sapphire Feather to be found at each and every participating library for a Book Prize!
