Texas Tech officials hope two major announcements made will help in their quest to make Lubbock home of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. The first announcement answers the question of where it would be built.
Right now, it's just an open field, but the proposed home lies just west of the Health Sciences Center and just south of Fourth Street. The coalition members said the area has a nice view of the campus, and you could access it easily from the Marsha Sharp Freeway once it's finished.

Bringing the Presidential Library to the South Plains will cost an estimated $20 million, but you don't have to give money in order to help. Lubbock Independent School District Superintendent, Wayne Havens announced he will ask the district's 28,000 students to send letters of support to the president, he'll also ask surrounding districts to do the same.
Bush Presidential Library Chairman, David Miller said, "Wether you're a Bush fan or not, certainly the library being located here is a great gem, if you will, in Lubbock's crown and we would love to have it here regardless of your political affiliation."
The goal is to get 100,000 students to write letters.
