Sent a requested book to another member but got it back this week marked "Moved left no address" and " Unable to forward".  Is there anything I need to do other than add it back to my bookshelf?  I don't want it to appear as if I never mailed the book nor do I want it to get marked lost in the mail.  I checked the member's name and it appears as if her account is no longer active though her name does show up. 

What do I do next??

Perhaps shoot an email to TPTB through the feedback page? You can't do much if you can't find the member.

This same thing happened to me one time. I simply reposted the book to my shelf.

I would do this as well, in case they have books on autorequest, so the PBS folks can put a hold on her account until she updates her address.  Technically, the Help Center says you should PM the member about the problem first, then send a message to the PBS team if you don't get a response within 5 days.  If she wants you to resend the book, she should give you an additional credit since the error was on her end.

Cheers,

I would PM the requester first.  If you get no response, contact TPTB and repost the book.  There have been cases where the post office has a major brain fart and the person was still living at the same house they had lived in for 20 years.  This commonly happens when the lazy postal workers come into play.  Not that all problems are caused by lazy postal workers or that all postal workers are lazy, I've just heard a couple of stories from my ExSIL who worked at a post office for a couple of years with her parents.  She's an Ex for a reason and some of her stories about her job laziness reflected qualities that she later showed in her marriage.
