Jerome Eberle was an editor for the adult books section for the American Library Association with Booklist Magazine. In this position, he assigned books to reviewers while receiving incoming ones. He also made sure everything met deadlines. Outside of his professional life, Jerome Eberle is involved with the Friends of the Chicago River.

The Friends of the Chicago River was honored in January 2017 for efforts to improve the river’s quality of water while restoring and bettering the Chicago River system. The Friends of the Chicago River was given the Education, Outreach and Media Award from the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission.

The executive director of the Friends of the Chicago River mentioned that getting the public interested in ways that storm water management can be improved and why they should try to find solutions was a crucial component of its public outreach. It also helps individuals understand how the river system works and affects all of those who depend on it. Conserving water and making sure that sewers do not overflow are other important part of the non-profit’s efforts.
