Located on the Newport campus and open to the public, the IYRS student library is a handsomely restored part of the 1831 Aquidneck Mill, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The student library has extraordinary views of Newport Harbor and its entrance from Narragansett Bay. Students utilize the library for research, projects, documentation, leisure reading, and use of the hi-speed Mac computers.
With an extensive collection of yacht design, build and other related materials, the library contains more than 4,000 titles, rare books, and source materials and directories. There are also many artifacts, dating as far back as the late 19th century.
