Quest Learning Center

The East Palo Alto Library Quest Learning Center is a free service of the San Mateo County Libraries for youth in grades 1st-3rd.

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 and reading comprehension and enrichment, and can support related homework in a safe after school environment with student-to-tutor ratios of 5:1 or better.
