Join the Homeschool Nonfiction Book Club at Penfield Public Library! We had an awesome meeting yesterday about the book The Great and Only Barnum. Participants created projects based on the book. We had a P.T. Barnum Timeline, a full scale model of “The Living Skeleton,” a comedic presentation about a famous hoax, a model of Tom Thumb’s wedding, a discussion of animal abuse in the circus, and even a video game called Escape from the Eclectic Museum.Click onto this glog to see pictures from the meeting!!

The next meeting takes place on December 2 at 10:30 am and the book is going to be on The Day-Glo Brothers:The True Story of Bob and Joe Switzer’s Bright Ideas and Brand New Colors by Chris Barton. For more information, email YA librarian Lyla Grills at
