The City of Springfield is proceeding with plans to sell the former Lincoln Library West Branch building. But now whatever money comes in will go directly to the library.
Originally, city officials had planned to return proceeds from the sale to the general corporate fund, but now say the money will support other library programs and services.
Alderman Kris Theilen says he wants to make sure the city does not sell the building on West Washington for a rock bottom price. The city sold its former South Branch facility to a local insurance company for one-dollar.
