The Guile Reference Manual is (for example) available at

but note that this is the manual for the upcoming release 1.6.  If you
are using 1.4 or older, some features may be documented which are new
to Guile and which may not be available in your version.

contains links to a nice Scheme tutorial by Dorai Sitaram and the
online version of `Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs',
the classic introduction to computer science and Scheme.
