What's on at the Library

Looking for something to do and wondering what's on at your local library?  We regularly update the monthly libraries calendar so check back regularly.

The Shire of Dandaragan Libraries at Jurien Bay and Dandaragan are thrilled to be participating in the annual Golden Feather Hunt. We are one of 130 public libraries participating across Western Australia, and we can’t wait for you all to participate in the hunt for one of only FIVE Golden Feathers. Finding a Golden Feather is your ticket to some amazing prizes – an iPad, a VIP Scribblers Festival experience, and more!

But that’s not the only shiny object to be found – we also have a shimmering Sapphire Feather hidden in each participating library and 20 Silver Feathers with book prizes for each.  Arguably our favourite part of the Hunt is to see your creativity in action when you decorate 1 (or 10) of the 15,000 White Feathers nestled in your favourite children’s and young adult books between 18 March and 7 May 2021 and post them on Instagram or Facebook, tagging @scribblersfest, #goldenfeatherhunt and #shireofdandaraganlibraries for the chance to win a spot prize.

Librarycraft March Build Competition - 'Cave'

We're asking players to be specific with their entries this time, with Cave as our theme, but there's a backstory: Due to overpopulation and pollution, the overworld has been rendered uninhabitable - nuclear fallout has destroyed surface water and anything alive. Everyone is now forced to live underground in caves. Just like we did back in August with Underwater Bases, there are things you MUST include in your build.

These are:

·        an air filtration system
·        a water filtration system
·        farms and livestock (not too many)
·        living quarters
·        cave security
·        work / school / leisure spaces

Have a think about what you'd want in a cave home. Remember, you can't go to the surface.

Rules:

·        All building must be in Creative Mode
·        This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
·        Builders can claim ONE plot only
·        All entries must be built on the March Comp world
·        Designs must be your own – no copying from online!

Judging will take place during the first week of April 2021. 

The March Comp world gate – located on the Warp Ship –is open.
