October is American Archives Month! Where’s the coolest place to work at the National Archives? The Ice Cube, of course!
At the Federal Records Center (FRC) in Lenexa, Kansas, one storage bay stands out from all of the other rooms at our facility. It is a stand-alone room, equipped with state-of-the-art scanners and barcodes. And it is just a bit cooler than the rest of the center, checking in at 35°F in the main room and 25°F in the freezer. We refer to the room as the “Ice Cube,” and the items stored in the room are assorted types of film.
What’s the coldest place - or the coolest place - you’ve ever worked?
