Zimmerman Library


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.


Welcome to our dynamic, friendly and energetic library. Our first priority it to put students and teachers in touch with the best information and recreational reading resources. We curate our collections to meet the academic, creative and personal interests of students here at Severn, and hope that every student can see him/herself reflected within our collection. We strive to help students become ethical users of information and technology as well as savvy consumers of information. The world of information is changing every day; don’t be afraid to ask for help navigating your search!
