Gaelic resource added to online digital library for ANGUSalive library members


8th January 2021

ANGUSalive has added a new genre to its online digital library thanks to funding from the public body of the Scottish Government with responsibility for Gaelic development, Bòrd na Gàidhlig. This funding has provided 19 new Gaelic e-book titles, covering a wide range of interests and language abilities.

The Gaelic resource section in ANGUSalive’s digital library includes everything from ‘Gaelic Guerrilla’ to ‘Easy Learning Gaelic language activities for 5-7 year olds’.

Gaelic Guerrilla is the story of John Angus Mackay who campaigned tirelessly for Gaelic language television programmes and it is partly down to John that BBC Alba came to be.

Christine Sharp, Adult and Community Libraries Lead told us “We were able to purchase these e-book titles which are available for our library members to download free of charge as part of our successful funding bid, and we would like to thank Bòrd na Gàidhlig for their support of our Gaelic digital project.”

ANGUSalive (SC046133) is the culture, sport and leisure trust for the county of Angus and has been operating since December 2015.
