5 Things You Need to Know Today: November 13

Mentalist and Mindbender at the library tonight, lecture on Holocaust in Lithuania and trash pick-up schedule.

1. Street trash pickup is on a holiday schedule so Monday's collection is today. Call Belmont Public Works Department at 617-993-2680 with any questions.

2. Rory Raven isn't psychic, but he can read your mind, bend a spoon, and leave you talking about it for the rest of your life. "Rory Raven Will Read Your Mind" is a fun, audience-participation show that will entertain and amaze that will be held by the Belmont Public Library at 7 p.m. in the Assembly Room. It's free.

3. "The Kovno Ghetto: Stories of Light and Darkness in a Lithuanian Ghetto," will be presented by Geoffrey G. Brahmer at the Beech Street Center at 1 p.m. The educational coordinator of Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brahmer has been researching the Holocaust and lecturing in both Israel and the U.S. His one-hour presentation uses the work of a Jewish photographer forced into the ghetto who took clandestine pictures and two Kovno ghetto diaries—that of a teenager and an attorney who was the secretary of the Kovno Jewish Council.

4. Story times for children ages 2 and 3, in which songs and movement are part of the story time experience, will take place for early risers at 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and then again from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Held across the hallway from the Children's Room in the Flett Room of the Belmont Public Library. For children aged four to five, Story craft for 4's and 5's will begin with a story followed by a simple craft. The storytelling will take place in the Flett Room across from the Children's Room from 3:15 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.

5. Belmont's Benton Library Pre-School Story Time is back beginning at 10:30 a.m. For children ages 2 1/2 to 5, this event features stories, word plays, and other activities. Siblings are welcome; parents or caretakers must be in attendance throughout the session. Registration is not required.
