City to study potential site for new Godeke Branch Library

From City of Lubbock:

The City of Lubbock is conducting a 90-day feasibility study to determine if a building and property could serve as the new location for the Godeke Branch Library. The building at 3838 50th Street is currently owned by Platinum Bank.

"I believe this is a great location," Mayor Glen Robertson said. "It's on a heavily traveled road in a well-known area, and it's located on a bus route." 

Mayor Robertson went on to say, "Platinum Bank is a Lubbock-based business that was established five years ago. We are pleased at the prospect of doing business with a good, strong community partner."   

Once the 90-day study is complete, the City Council will decide whether or not to purchase the building for $850,000, which is substantially less than the current appraised value. If the purchase is made, the City would see savings on the new location in about three years when compared to the $25,000 a month the City is paying to lease Godeke's current location on Slide Road.
