Smiley face. Wink. Thumbs up. Emojis have migrated from your cell phone out into the physical world. There are emoji socks, purses, key chains, candy and more, and now Garland tweens can make their own emoji pillows for free at the Garland Library’s Tween Scene programs in February.
Tween Scene is a program series designed for youth ages 10 through 13 that consists of activities related to fun and interesting themes. Participants also receive book recommendations based on each theme. The program takes place twice a month at various library locations on Thursday evenings.
At the February events, attendees will use felt and hot glue guns to create no-sew emoji pillows. Templates of different combinations of facial features will be available for tweens to create the desired expressions for their pillows. The first Tween Scene takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 7, at the South Garland Branch Library, with the second occurring at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 14, at the North Garland Branch Library.
The South Garland Branch Library is located at 4845 Broadway Blvd., at Oates Road. The North Garland Branch Library is located at 3845 N. Garland Ave., at Apollo Road. Please be aware that photographs and video may be taken at Library programs for use in print and/or electronic media at the Library’s discretion. For more information, call 972-205-3933.
