The Reader for hosting South Omaha newsroom pop-up

On Friday, March 3rd, The Reader will host a pop-up newsroom at the South Omaha Library from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

We hope this pop-up newsroom gives you the opportunity to share your thoughts on our coverage, get involved in citizen journalism programs, and learn more about how we approach editorial decision making.

We would also like this event to become a public space where Reader fans can communicate not only with us, but also with each other. Over the past few months, we have heard from many of you about your interest in connecting with like-minded people, and we would like to help facilitate those conversations and create a more active community along the way.

This concept was first proposed by the Honolulu Civil Beat, whose team traveled to Hawaii (no small feat!). We want to do something similar over the next few months, but we’ll start in South Omaha because that’s our home. Our office is located a little further down the street and we want to start this project in the area where we work every day.

We’ll set up the store in Conference Room A, just outside the library’s main entrance. Copies of our March issue will be available, and we’ll have a “break room” (okay, break counter) stocked with office essentials – snacks, coffee and water. We look forward to meeting you!
