Texas officials have worked out a plan to bring up to 23,000 refugees from the Superdome to Houston's Astrodome.
Hurricane refugees trapped in the Superdome will come to the 40-year-old Astrodome in over 500 buses under plans being put together by state and local officials.
"It will be a noble calling for the grand lady at this time in her career,'' said Harris County Judge Robert Eckels.
Librarians with the Harris County Public Library are already making plans to take library services such as internet access and storytime to the refugees.
