LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -The new Godeke Library is already up & running, but soon it will get its official ribbon cutting and Grand Opening.
The new Godeke, which is much larger than the old location, is where the Barnes & Noble Bookstore used to be on Slide Road, near the South Plains Mall.
Godeke moved to that location because the former location at 66th & Quaker had mold growth. The official Grand Opening for the new library is Thursday, February 18th at 10:30 a.m.
The City of Lubbock will demolish the old location and put up Lubbock's Public Safety Memorial in its place. The memorial will honor officers in Lubbock and 14 surrounding counties who have died in the line of duty.
