A Leading book retailer plans to help save Kensal Rise library by raising money through ebooks.
The library, opened by Mark Twain in 1900, was shut by Brent council despite a campaign to save it backed by authors including Philip Pullman and Zadie Smith.
Now former Waterstones boss Tim Coates is hoping to help campaigners raise enough money to take over the building.
From next month, he will offer an ebook service to Kensal Rise library users and schools in England, with half the profits going to the campaign. The service, Bilbary, has more than 350,000 titles and has been operating in US libraries for more than a year.
