Enjoy the New Ryan Library

Many of the Conference's activities will be held at Iona's new, state-of-the-art Ryan Library.

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.
