I'm not concerned so much about new players in the hobby, with the Stranger Things tie-in and the upcoming Rick & Morty tie-in, it's obvious there are some very smart people at Wizards these days.
D&D Beyond is also an excellent tool (they just need to figure out a mobile app), and the Critical Role and Acquistions Inc. tie-in stuff just adds even more fuel to the fire.
As a librarian I also see more and more formal programs and informal groups meeting at local branches, the hobby is doing quite well I think.
