LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - One way or the other, taxpayers will get the bill for mold in the Godeke Library. The big choice is whether to fix the current building or scrap it in favor of a new one.
Godeke closed the last week of January due to the discovery of mold. Monday, City Councilman Paul Beane gave the library board an update.
If the city needs to demolish Godeke and start from scratch, Beane thinks it may be time for Lubbock to have its very first branch library outside of Loop 289. "At this time the city does not have a branch library outside of Loop 289. And with our growth to the west and the southwest that might be the place to go, even though that might necessitate moving a branch library out of my district, District Four, said Beane.
Tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10, we have the costs of the various options and we'll look at them one by one.
