BREVARD COUNTY • INDIAN HARBOUR BEACH, FLORIDA – The late teacher and library patron Jacquelyn Hayhurst has left the Satellite Beach Library a $10,000 gift from her estate.
Hayhurst, passed away last May at the age of 86 in Indian Harbour Beach and was an avid reader, checking out a half-dozen books every time she visited the library.
She was a frequent patron at the Satellite Beach Public Library and much beloved by the staff. Hayhurst’s generosity will allow the library to further its mission of literacy and lifelong learning for our citizens.
Hayhurst was born on October 12, 1930, in Steubenville, Ohio to Carl and Helen Salchli and received her Master’s degree from FAU. After her long and successful teaching career, she continued to tutor students for the rest of her life.
A proud member of the American Association of University Women, she enjoyed playing bridge and was a lifelong traveler.
After she retired from teaching, Hayhurst went on an around-the-world cruise and toured the United States in a recreational vehicle, visiting many of our national parks.
The Satellite Beach Public Library has served the citizens of Brevard County for more than 50 years and has more than 70,000 items available for check-out.
The library is currently closed for major repairs to the HVAC system but is expected to re-open in late January 2018.
