The Register Citizen Newsroom Cafe, at 59 Field Street, Torrington, Connecticut, is open to the public as a place to consume not just coffee and a selection of locally made pastries and baked goods, but also a place to consume and contribute to local news.
Stop in for a cup of coffee, enjoy our free public wifi Internet access, and browse for free through 120 years of Register Citizen, Torrington Register and Winsted Evening Citizen archives rich in the history of Northwest Connecticut.
Check out, or contribute to, our Community Bulletin Board, the physical one inside our cafe, or hop on one of our Community News computer and upload your press release, local calendar item, Sound Off entry or letter to the editor.
Our newsroom staff will be there to help, and you will rub shoulders with the reporters and editors who produce The Register Citizen. You can share news tips and story ideas, or your feedback on local coverage. You are welcome to sit in on our daily newsroom story planning meeting at 4 p.m., which is also live-streamed on RegisterCitizen.Com. If you can’t make it in person, we hold simultaneous live chat so you can participate from home.
