CLSV's New Branch Library!
About one year ago, the City of Farrell sought the assistance of the Community Library of the Shenango Valley (CLSV) to operate the Stey-Nevant Public Library on its behalf. After extended discussions, the Board of Directors of CLSV unanimously agreed, and after a process of several months, Stey-Nevant became a branch of CLSV on January 1st of this year.
The new Stey-Nevant branch will continue to have the high quality programs and services it has traditionally featured for people of all ages. The same staff and volunteers look forward to being part of the new Library system. CLSV Stey-Nevant will also offer new programs and services that will be shared from the Sharon location, open to the citizens of Farrell. A monthly calendar of events is published and available in advance, so that residents will know what is happening at both CLSV and Stey-Nevant.
We are excited about the future of CLSV and the Stey-Nevant branch. We look forward to working together with the Farrell community and continuing to provide outstanding library services to our growing service area.

Thursday, May 12
Children of all ages have always loved to play with blocks but did you know that when they are building with blocks, children are learning more skills than we can imagine! Besides fostering creativity and developing imagination, children are learning language, literacy, and social skills. Our block parties include several sets of wooden blocks, dinosaur, animal, and people toys, road signs, and more! The parties will be held every other week in our Community Room. Join the fun! For children ages 3-6 and caregivers.
