    100 Books Before Christmas: Children ages two to seven (2-7) are encouraged to read – or be read to – 100 titles by December 16. Record titles on a sheet provided by the Library. Turn your child’s sheet in to the Warren Public Library Children’s Department by 5:00 p.m., December 16, and your child’s name will be placed in a random drawing for a Biscuit Plush Pack.
