Get a New ID in the Library!

Have you lost your ID card?  Are you going on a trip and need some ID?  Are you new and never got a Goldenview ID?  Then come by the library and we'll set you up with one!  New students will get an ID for free, all others must pay a $5 replacement fee.  This year we are unable to make ID's onsite, so it will take 7-10 days to get the ID's back.  If you want an ID, come by the library, leave your name and $5, and we will deliver it to you when we get them!
