New Rochelle children ages 5 and up can go to the New Rochelle Public Library Saturday, Dec. 15 for the annual "Make a Gift to Give" fair.

The free event will begin at 12:30 p.m. and continue to 2:30 p.m. and is par the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District Family Day series.

Participants choose three gifts to make for family and friends, including tea light holders, candy jars, ceramic hotplates and calendars.

During the 2011 event, children could make a gift of Confetti Soup in a Jar, a present that provided a full meal.

Last year, Barbara Davis, the library's community relations coordinator, said the gift making day is one of the most popular events.

"We usually have several hundred children come through in the two-and-a-half hours," she said.

The children will be assisted in making the gifts by staff and volunteers from the New Rochelle schools staff, the city's Department of Parks and Recreation and the library.

After making the gifts, the children can wrapped them and put tags on them at the "Wrap It Up!" station.
