Media Mail forwarding is spotty--and usually is postage due. It may or may nit ever show up at his new location.
I would forward the correspondence to TPTB and ask them to intervene on your behalf.
What Laura said, Media Mail is touch-and-go forwarding, it could go either way.
Yes, it is the other members responsibility to change his address in a timely manner so senders do not loose their credit. If the book has not arrived in a few more days, consider forwarding his correspondence to PBS admin.
There is one more thing you can do. There is a Help doc in the Help Center called "What if I move or change my email address?", which says in part:
It is the requestor's responsibility to provide a working address to senders. If you do not keep your address current and correct on your account, you will need to give credits for (=mark received) any books that are sent to the wrong address, whether or not you are able to collect them, and whether or not they are returned to the sender. Providing a dependable, correct address to senders is part of the honor system that helps keep this club working so well, and it is essential to maintaining membership.
I would suggest sending the other member a PM that tells him how to find this doc and points out that it does say he has to mark the book received. Once you've helped him understand his responsibilities, then you've done everything you can. If he doesn't live up to those responsibilities and mark the book received within a few days, that's when you should contact PBS.
