Batavia's popular monthly noontime book program, Books Between Bites, welcomes Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke on Thursday, Jan. 16, for his annual visit to the free monthly book discussion series. It will be held from noon to 1 p.m. at the Batavia Public Library, 10 S. Batavia Ave. Each year, the mayor shares stories and historical anecdotes about the city. This year he reveals a whole file of materials put together by the late Batavia historian Bill Wood about famous folk in "Batavia Celebrities, 1908-1909."

The public is invited to attend this free program and reservations are not required. It is held in the large community room located on the main level of the library. Parking is available in the lot just south and adjacent to the library.

People are invited to bring their lunch and eat as they enjoy the program and discussion. Lunch items, beverages and baked goods can be purchased at Chapters Coffeehouse & Cafe, just inside the library and adjacent to the meeting room.
