Visitors were shocked to find their MP making a surprise appearance at the Heath Library’s annual book sale, according to Heathman’s sources.

The Friends of Heath Library raised a record £1,382 from generous book donations at the annual sale.

Hundreds pitched up at Keats Grove to snap up £1 book deals, including Hampstead & Kilburn Glenda Jackson’s biography.

Ruth Gorb, of the friends group, said: “This year we did better than we have ever done before. We are absolutely thrilled.”

The library is threatened with closure after Camden Council withdrew its funding.

The friends group is holding a meeting on October 19 to discuss the library’s future.

Perhaps Glenda will lend her support with another surprise appearance?
