Civil Beat’s mobile newsroom is headed to Molokai this week.

A number of our staff will be posted up in the Molokai Public Library all day and eager to talk to people about issues and ideas.

This is our 11th pop-up newsroom and we’ve met with hundreds of people all over the state. These roving newsrooms have been great ways for our staff to get to know more about a number of different communities, and we’ve heard over and over again how much residents appreciate that we are coming to them.

The pop-ups are very casual, just drop in any time between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., the regular library hours. Our staff that will be there includes Chad Blair, Kirstin Downey, Marina Riker, Nathan Eagle, Alana Eagle and Ku’u Kauanoe.

Our pop-ups are being held in partnership with the Hawaii State Public Library System. Please reach out to your local library or email us at if you’d like us to come to your community.

Help power our public service journalism

As a local newsroom, Civil Beat has a unique public service role in times of crisis.

That’s why we’re committed to a paywall-free website and subscription-free content, so we can get vital information out to everyone, from all communities.

We are deploying a significant amount of our resources to covering the Maui fires, and your support ensures that we can pivot when these types of emergencies arise.
