Can I still use a public domain picture that has been deleted from Wikimedia Commons?

It would be no problem switching pictures on my HubPages articles, but I have used several public domain Wikimedia Commons pictures in a book I self-published. I have listed their sites in the Reference section of my books. I have since discovered some of those pictures have been deleted, and the links broken. Do I have to find other pictures, and re-publish my books?

    Wow - that's a good idea. Maybe I can get the info from the deleted picture from Wikipedia Commons?
