Leabharlannan - Libraries

Glasgow Libraries aim to develop our Gaelic collections to support the reading and learning needs of both native Gaelic speakers and learners across the city.

We provide a range of contemporary and traditional reading material for adults and children. These are accessible through our catalogue and can be delivered to you at your library of choice.

Young People
We provide books in Gaelic for children and young people supporting children and parents in their learning. Our Bookbug programme is also available in Gaelic, please check the website for details.

Digital Resources
Gaelic is one of the 100 languages which can be learnt online using our Transparent Languages e-languages resource. This allows you learn at your own pace on or offline, assess your progress and practice listening, reading and speaking through a series of activities. All you need is a current membership card. Check out our research 24/ 7 pages for more information.
