Meet JCLF board member Kate Gasper

Meet Kate Gasper, 2024 Johnson County Library Foundation board member, and learn why she loves the library!

“The library is my happy place. The Johnson County Libraries have supported me in every stage of my life. Whether it was finding the perfect resources for my 2nd grade science report, needing a quiet place to study for the bar exam, or seeking a destination for my restless toddlers, I always found the Johnson County Library to be—above all else—welcoming. Libraries are a unique gathering place for the entire community, regardless of age, wealth, or politics. I am excited to offer my time and treasure to an institution that offers so much to so many.”

Kate O’Hara Gasper is a partner in the law firm of Lathrop GPM, LLP.  She focuses her practice on business litigation and, wherever possible, helping her clients avoid business litigation.  Kate is a proud alumna of Kansas State University and the University of Kansas Law School.  Meaning, she’s an avid fan of Wildcats, Jayhawks, and in-state tuition.  Born and raised in Johnson County, Kate is honored to support the Johnson County Library Foundation.  Kate and her husband Adam reside in Prairie Village with their two sons.
