Meet Allie Genia – ALSC’s 2023 Emerging Leader

Aanii boozhoo kina wiiyaa, mino giizhigat. Allie Genia ndizhinikaaz. Waganakasing Odawak ndadibendaagwaz, mshiiken ndodem. Nkwejanong ndoojibaa, Virginia ndidaa.  Hello everyone, it’s a good day. My name is Allie Genia. I belong to the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians, my clan is Turtle. I’m from Lansing, Michigan and I currently live in Northern Virginia. I’m a Children’s Librarian for the DC Public Library at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library, and I’m ALSC’s 2023 Emerging Leader! You were selected as one of only forty-six people who will be participating in ALA’s 2023 class of Emerging Leaders. CONGRATULATIONS! How do you hope this opportunity will enhance your work as a librarian? Miigwech, thank you! I’m thrilled to be a part of this cohort. My hope for participating overall is that I’ll be able to build good relationships with other Emerging Leaders and further the profession in a good way….
