The third floor houses University Archives and Special Collections, and the fourth floor has two reading rooms, one of which is the Ruth M. Kleymeyer Hall of Presidents.

Great event, with plenty to do for all ages. Only complaint is there wasn't enough cookies to decorate but that's a good thing because it means you had a large turnout
