Homework Help-Word of mouth?

Tinfoil Raccoon has an excellent post about the recently released report from the National Education Association in relation to homework help and reaching out to teens one evening at the library in ways that are relevant to their lives:

-Thursday gaming night
-discussion about a gaming magazine, what RPGs they play, and what anime/manga clubs exist in the area
-promoting the library’s IM homework help

Reaching out to the community about library services through casual conversation is also mentioned in Tinfoil’s post.

My coworker often tells me stories of reading manga at a restaurant and promoting the library because someone is interested in what he is reading.

What works well for you?
