The Bindery's core vision is to connect book and literary artists with one another, while inspiring others to join us in exploring and celebrating these expressive forms.  We see a flourishing, diverse and engaged community as essential to all we do; we can't be The Bindery without you.

CONNECT & LEARN

We work internally, and with collaborative partners, to create an array of community programming, and experiences to help accomplish this vision.  How this works in a pandemic, though, is shifting as we go.  Below are the main programs we typically run in "normal" times.  Stay tuned for more info (and follow us on social media) for upcoming programs planned with in-house safety, or at-home distance, in mind.

YOUR SAFETY IS IMPORTANT TO US.

SO IS YOUR WELL-BEING.

WE'RE WORKING ON WAYS TO SUPPORT BOTH.
