We are a dynamic, energetic library and our first priority is to foster growth in our community. We lead by example as intellectual, ethical users of information and technology. We seek to provide every student with tools to navigate the vast landscape of information beyond our library doors. We provide the very best in relevant online and print materials, curated to meet the academic, creative and personal interests of students and faculty here at Severn. Our library is a place where everyone knows your name. Welcome.

Why Headwaters?
Headwaters are the beginning of a river or a stream, which can grow into something vast and beautiful, like our own Severn River. We like to think that academic inquiry grows in the same way. With information resources and a helping hand from our library staff, small ideas grow into robust, fully formed research.


Severn School Library collaborates with teachers across disciplines to prepare students for their futures.

Through its support of the school’s curriculum, the Library ensures that Severn graduates are skilled and ethical users of information.

The Library fosters the love of reading and lifelong learning by maintaining a robust collection that caters to diverse backgrounds, perspectives, interests and opinions.
