Exposure to numerous and varied texts is essential for comprehensive learning of literacy, and indeed, lifelong learning of any subject. Active Library Program is implemented as a component in many of QUEST's projects and also independently.

The Project Associates are trained to work as Library Educators. In Wada block, the project is undertaken in two Ashram Schools. The library educators visit both Ashram Schools twice a week and conduct story reading sessions for the students of Grades 1 to 7. For every story book, they prepare detailed session plans, including an activity prior to reading, the actual reading session, a post-reading activity and questions to be asked.
