If you didn't get the email, you can view it at (once you log in).
Be sure you don't miss Malicious social engineering scams pretend to support local libraries on page 16, which talks about "reports of Wisconsin citizens receiving puzzling email solicitations purporting to originate from political organizations suggesting their specific local library needed public support to counteract unspecified challenges to library materials and requesting participation in a poll or survey."
