A user has access to another user's shared contacts. When creating a calendar invite using those contacts both users are notified. Is there a way to have only one use be notified? Should these contacts be made public? When attempting to make the shared folder public I received the following error: "Cannot move the items. Cannot copy this folder because it may contain private items."

That may mean certain contacts within the user's list have been marked as private or have permission set not to allow public viewing.

If you are using an Exchange server, the easiest thing to do long term is have your Exchange admin create a group for you. Otherwise Microsoft has instructions on how to properly do a public share of a contact list:

This issue happens because by default users do not have access to private items in the mailbox, even though they have full mailbox access permission.
To fix this issue do the following
1)     Take full Access on the Shared mailbox
2)      Create a new outlook profile
3)     Add delegate permission for the user who should be able to move folders, follow the below steps to add delegates.
•         Client on Tools,  Options, select Delegates tab
•         Now Click on Add to add a delegate, Select user who should have permission to move folders
•         When you see the prompt to setup permission check the box Delegate Can see my Private Items, I also added permission for inbox as editor and it work for me.
