Go to your local bus stop. This could be a busy terminal or something smaller, and chances are you will notice people there looking a bit bored. It's an easy way to say hi, and make small talk. And unlike the library, where people are also quiet, it is preferred to make some noise.
Just be natural and vibe. Find out where they're going and go from there. If they ask you, you can say you are passing through or just waiting for a friend to show. The key is to be natural and don't hit on them.
Have a walk around and sit down near some people. If they are holding a map then you can ask them if they are lost and go from there.
If you're a tourist from out of town then this is a great way to make some friends and learn a little bit about the locals. And maybe they can recommend some good places for you to visit. And if all goes well, you may even get invited out with them.
There is nothing unusual about doing this sort of thing, as some might say. It's called being socially well adjusted and not making a big deal.
