Chicago library scene of surprise marriage proposal

You would expect these things to happen at a library: books checked out, classes taught, children’s story hour, and a book sale. But how about a marriage proposal?

That’s what Jason Methner did to propose to his girlfriend Molly Lipsitz. He wrote a children’s book, called “A Hare-y Tale,” about his relationship with her that featured her favorite stuffed animal (a  bunny), a tortoise, and a marriage proposal. He had the book printed, then placed it in the children’s section of the Harold Washington Library in Chicago.

Both Jason and Molly are fans of books and libraries, so it seemed like a creative and fitting place to pop the question. He made up a story to get her to the library, helped her find the book, and then got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes.

Photographer Aparna Paul Jain was in on the surprise proposal and snapped Lipsitz’s reaction when Methner popped the question. (photos courtesy of Aparna Paul Jain.)
