Do you advertise your library programs and services in the laundromat?  It's a place where people, often families, spend a fair amount of time waiting.  If you aren't already advertising your services there, you might want to consider doing so.  You might even want to see if you can put up a free little library there, or some conversation starters for families.  You can find some fun free graphics at Talking Is Teaching.

Some libraries actually do storytimes at the laundromat during times that they've found a peak number of families there. They have actually found that families adjust their laundry day so that they can be there when the library is there!   If you are trying to reach new audiences, this is a pretty great place to do it.
