Welcome

Middlesex Bindery is a full service bindery located in Lowell, Massachusetts.

We are kinda sorta open-ish

We are making efforts to slowly reopen. The building remains closed to the public.

I cannot promise to be open on any particular day or at any particular hour, and even then at reduced hours. If I run into any difficulty on the subway, train, or weather, I will not be open that day. The train is increasing its service to roughly once an hour, so my plan is that, on the days I am able to make it, I will be open at either 9:00 am or 10:00 am, and close at 3:00 pm or 4:30.

In order to make sure I’m here and to assure everyone’s safety, during those hours, you must have an appointment to visit. An appointment can be made as little as ½ hour ahead. A properly worn mask is required to enter the building and the bindery.

No mask : no service.

All of this is subject to change, of course. Please stay safe and healthy.

Hours of operation

With the current COVID-19 situation, we can no longer allow walk-ins. An appointment is required to insure only one visitor in the bindery at a time. The building remains closed to the public. Scheduling and appointment will make it possible for us to meet you at the door. Such is the state of the world.
