Vintage Public Library from Series XIII handcrafted from 3/4" thick wood by The Cat's Meow Village in the USA

6" x 3.75"

This ¾” thick Public Library is hand screen printed on the front and back. It is part of a eight-piece series of buildings called Series XIII, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her thirteenth year of business. This series was introduced in January 1995 and retired in December 2000.

Located on Front and Walnut Streets, Harrisburg Public Library first opened its doors at 2 o'clock in the afternoon on New Year's Day, 1914. 5,000 people registered to borrow books within the first month.

Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.

There are a limited number of this piece available, which is reflected in the price. With your purchase of this building, Faline will donate 10% to Amani Ya Juu, a fair-trade sewing and training program for marginalized women throughout Africa. Visit their website: (no wholesale orders)
