The East Palo Alto Library Quest Learning Center is a free service of the San Mateo County Libraries for youth in K – 12th.

Our mission is to improve students’ literacy skills to help them become part of a literate, confident, and creative community of life-long learners.

We offer literacy enrichment, homework help, and mentoring in a safe after school environment with student-to-tutor ratios of 5:1 or better.
