The Memphis Library provides countless good things and great services to the city — books, videos, computer access, meeting facilities, and television and radio programming.

The library's radio station, WYPL, has a full slate of public service shows, covering the arts, books, Congressional activities, health, music, and more. For a full listing of the station's programs, go here.

WYPL also has lots of volunteer readers who narrate best-sellers and biographies, and other books of note. They also read local publications, including the Flyer. That schedule is here.

The Flyer gets read on Fridays at 1:00 p.m. Things usually are pretty straightforward, but once in a while, as in the case of my column last week, about taking over the restroom facilities at Big Hill Pond State Park, the readers get a little flummoxed at having to read "colorful" language on the air.

That said, I think you'll enjoy the efforts of this volunteer, and her skill at leaving out certain words, while still attempting to capture the spirit of the column.

You can listen to it here.
