City Council to discuss future of Godeke Library Thursday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The future of Godeke Library comes up Thursday on the Lubbock City Council agenda.

Godeke has been closed to the public since late January because it is infested with mold. Thursday's discussion is behind closed doors so we might not get any new information.

NewsChannel 11 hears the city might move library materials into one or two different empty commercial structures. However, city officials say those rumors are not true. This photograph is from inside Godeke. The city shared photographs of the mold saying one option is to tear down the building.

The Mayor has said on the record that he might like to hire an outside company to either build or remodel another location. The city would then lease the new location from that company. Another option is to maybe try to clean up the current Godeke location. Mayor Martin is reluctant to pursue that option because the building is close to a playa lake and prone to flooding, which can lead to mold.
