Joyce Metcalf, a worker at Morris Library, volunteers to read local news Monday at the Southern Illinois Radio Information Service in Carbondale. SIRIS is a public broadcasting service, which provides local and national news readings for those who are visually impaired, blind and print-disabled, Sarah Maher, secretary at the SIRIS center, said. “It really is a great organization and everyone who signs up to receive the broadcast will get a free radio,” Metcalf said. The information service is located at 103 South Oakland and is open from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday and Wednesday through Friday, and 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday. Anyone interested in signing up to volunteer or receive the broadcast may visit the center for more information.
