Former Godeke building to be torn down

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The former Godeke Library building will be torn down to make way for a public safety memorial.

The Lubbock City Council voted in Tuesday's meeting, in favor of a motion to demolish the building at 66th and Quaker. The library closed a year ago after mold was found throughout the building, it reopened a few weeks ago inside the former Barnes and Noble.

"We were able to reuse the site, reuse the slab because it will be an outdoor memorial and then our public safety memorial officials will be able to use that and build a very nice memorial to our public safety folks," says Mark Yearwood, City of Lubbock CIO.

The parking lot, footing and slab will remain in place at the Quaker location for the construction of the memorial. It will honor Lubbock and area Public Safety Professionals who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

It will also pay tribute to those who serve the Lubbock community every day.
