My opinion, since she's being uncooperative, is that you find a friend or 
volunteer or family member,or her aide if you can contact her (him?) directly 
(to come get the books and leave them on her/his doorstep.

Hi ladies:
I am having a problem with a bookshare 
volunteer.  If you know this person, please don't mention it to them.  

So there is this volunteer for bookshare who lives 
in my area.  they live maybe 15 minutes away.  they have these very 
ambitious ideas about what they want scanned for bookshare and they  would 
send me boxes of books to scan.  they also gave me books they wanted back. 
So the drill would be I'd scan them, send the books back to the person, and 
they 
would proof them.  The problem is this: they would send me so many to scan 
there was a massive backlog.  So like half of my library was this person's 
books.  Now that I am moving, I want to give the books back to this 
person.  I have offered to pay their aid to come and pick them up.  
We're talking two *huge* boxes of books.  they have to weigh thirty to 
forty pounds each.  So I have offered to pay the aid.  I can't send 
the books myself since I am low on cash now.  I have emailed this person 
multiple times  and tried to call on several occasions.  They wrote 
back to me once, saying they were in denial I was moving.  But they keep 
dodging and screening my calls and not answering my emails.  I don't know 
what to do with these books, since they are not mine.  I don't know WTF is 
going on with this person but I'm absolutely furious here.
Thoughts?
