To request a video or radio program online, please use the KQED Lending Library Program Request Form. For video requests, please remember to indicate VHS or DVD in the title of your request. Thank you!

Go to the Lending Library Program Request Form

For round-the-clock convenience, you may record your order after hours, on weekends, and on holidays at the same number or through the above form. Your selection will be mailed to you for your home viewing/listening enjoyment. When finished, just mail it back using the enclosed return label.

Because video distribution is highly regulated, not all broadcast shows are available for home viewing. However, if you are especially interested in a program that is not included in KQED's collection, please let us know. We will do our best to add frequently requested tapes to our lending library. We are sorry, but library tapes are not for duplication or resale. If you want to purchase a videotape please contact PBS Home Video.
