BOOKS FOR AFRICA ... Tatiana Grossman, a seventh grader at the Jewish Day School in Palo Alto, was inspired by her upcoming Bat Mitzvah to collect 1,000 books for a school library in Botswana, Africa. The effort is part of the African Library Project run by Chris Bradshaw of Portola Valley. Tatiana far exceeded her initial goal. She collected more than 3,000 books, which will help start two other school libraries in Africa. The Palo Alto Children's Library helped Tatiana by setting up a donation table for her for 10 days in September. "I want to thank the whole community for coming together to help me and the children of Africa," Tatiana wrote in a thank-you e-mail to those who helped.
