Former West Branch Library Sold, Future of Building Uncertain


It’s unclear what’s in store for the former Lincoln Library West Branch building, now that aldermen have approved its sale to Sacred Heart-Griffin High School.

 

Alderman Kris Theilen told the city council last week that the building, which has been closed since 2008, would be converted to office and classroom space for the school.

 

But SH-G officials tell 970 WMAY News that they will conduct a space utilization study before deciding what to do with the building.

 

The former West Branch had been appraised at $250,000 just a few years ago… but SH-G’s $40,000 bid was the only one submitted for the purchase of the building.
