Reading files from a directory inside a meteor app

How can i read the public directory in a meteor application inside my /server path.

I tried using the native

package but i keep getting a file/directory not found error.

var fs = Npm.require('fs');
var files = fs.readdirSync('/public/soundfiles/');

Has anyone used the filesystem package to read static files inside a meteor application?
