The Archive is an enclosed library located within Hivory Towers. The entrance can be found through a locked gate close to Rextro's Arcade. The walls in the room are lined from bottom to top with bookshelves, and an aquarium is found in the center. A collectible Pagie can be seen behind a glass wall with multiple doorways.
In one corner of the room, Trowzer can be found near a neon arrow, and Yooka and Laylee will learn the Buddy Bubble move after interacting with him. Once the switch at the bottom of the aquarium has been hit, a passage leading to the Waterworks will open.
