"The Greatest Show in Stow" was our first-ever all-library carnival, on Pride in Library Day during Stow's Pride Week that leads up to the Fourth of July. We had over 1,000 patrons come to the library that day to play children's games for prizes, try their hand at the High Striker game, enter our gas card raffle, take silly photos at the photo booth, and eat carnival food (popcorn, cotton candy, and Handel's ice cream pops). Fun for all!
