The library's flags are flying at half-staff today in honor of Army Private First Class Shane M. Reifert of Cottrellville, Michigan, who died November 6 in Kunar province, Afghanistan.

Pfc. Reifert, age 23, died from injuries suffered when insurgents attacked his unit with small arms fire. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
