> Our local authority has taken the decision to boycott Israeli goods, which appears to extend to books written by Israeli authors. Whilst we support the principle behind the corporate decision, we are naturally concerned about the message this sends out about how our libraries are stocked and the implications this has.
> Does anyone on the list work for an organisation with a similar policy in place, and does it extent to library stock?
