City of Lubbock to Consider New Godeke Library Site

Facebook

The City of Lubbock will begin consideration of a new potential site for the Godeke Branch Library.

The City is conducting a 90-day feasibility study to determine if the building at 3838 50th Street could serve as the library’s new location.

Godeke is currently located at 6707 Slide Road, and the lease costs $25,000 per month for the building space, according to the City.

The potential location on 50th Street is currently owned by Platinum Bank, and the building’s purchase price would be $850,000, lower than the Lubbock Central Appraisal District’s valuation of $970,000.

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

The City estimates that if the Lubbock City Council chooses to purchase the building following the feasibility study, savings would be realized in about three years.
