Ryan Library was named after Patrick J. Ryan, founder of the American Province of the Congregation of Christian Brothers. Originally opened in 1949, the 2010 reconstruction conforms to Iona's Georgian Colonial with its rich red brick construction, subtle wood trim and elegant tile roofing.

Today the site houses the bulk of the Iona College Libraries' print collection. It also offers dual-boot iMacs offering a choice of Windows and Mac operating systems with online access to subscription electronic research databases and journals.
