The mission of The Ray Charles Memorial Library is to help schools and students find a way to infuse music back into the curriculum of their schools and to provide an avenue for young children to experience music and art in a way that will inspire their creativity and imagination. It is the vision of this library to create an interactive and artistic platform for the youth to tap into their artistic minds and stimulate their senses through the introduction of music and art.

But Ray Charles was also an entrepreneur who created a very successful business from his music. And so it is also the mission of The Library to create programs that teach students entrepreneurial skills that they can use to create successful careers.
