Teen Tech Week at local libraries

Teens can celebrate Teen Tech Week 2011 by participating in Fraser Valley Regional Library’s (FVRL) Teens Tweet contest running March 7 through 13.

A Twitter treasure hunt of sorts, teens can enter to win prizes, including an Apple iPad and Toshiba Netbook.

The contest is open to teens aged 13 to 19 with FVRL cards and who live or work in a community that FVRL serves.

The contest will involve teens getting daily instructions from FVRL’s Twitter contest page. Teens will use the instructions to complete a task using Twitter, Facebook or the FVRL website.

Winners will be chosen by random draw March 21.

For more information, including contest rules and instructions, visit” or your nearest FVRL location.
