• BUDGET CUTS = REDUCED SERVICE – To close a budget gap of nearly $73,000 created by reduced local and state funding for libraries, the Library Board has had to make some tough decisions, including the following: Staff will not receive raises. Longevity payments will be frozen at 2009 levels. The library will close at 6pm instead of 9pm on Fridays, beginning on September 10. In 2010, the library will close on 12 days from September thru December. These closed days will be furlough days for the staff (i.e. staff will not be paid). – October 11, Monday – Columbus Day – October 20, Wednesday – November 2, Tuesday – Election Day – November 11, Thursday – Veterans Day – November 26, Friday – Day after Thanksgiving – December 4, Saturday – December 10, Friday – December 20, Monday – December 21, Tuesday – December 22, Wednesday – December 23, Thursday – December 24, Christmas Eve Day (holiday) – December 25, Christmas Day (holiday) – December 26, Sunday The Library Board regrets any inconvenience for the public. Every effort was made to balance available funding and resources with the community’s needs for library services. A careful analysis was done of patterns of use and a survey of current practices in NJ libraries was conducted to arrive at this course of action. The library is better positioned now to meet 2011, which will also be a very difficult budget year. • NEW SCHEDULE OF FINES – A new schedule of fines and fees will go into effect in September. Fines will go to 10¢ a day from 5¢ a day per item. There will be an amnesty from September 1 to 12 to give the public every opportunity to clear accounts before the new fines and fees begin. • BOOK SALE: SAT 25 and SUN 26 – Now is the time to drop off donations of books and audio-visual items that are in good condition (no moldy items or textbooks, please) for the Friends of the Library Book Sale. Note: Tables will be set up under tents, so the sale will be on, rain or shine.

New Superintendent Selected

Board appoints Richard P. Perry

The Haddonfield Board of Education has appointed Dr. Richard P. Perry as its next Superintendent of Schools.


 Media darling Dance Haddonfield has done it again! This time the group was named “Best Way to Spice it Up” on Philadelphia Magazine’s annual “Best of Philly” list. Find out for yourself what the buzz is about. Intermediate lessons, featuring talented dancers and instructors, are held each Sunday from 6 to 7pm.

Bargain Alert!

Dr. Perry comes to Haddonfield with 27 years of experience in education, most recently as superintendent for the Palmyra School District. Before that, he served as principal of Palmyra High School. He graduated from Haddon Heights High School, began his career as a science teacher, and earned his doctoral degree in educational administration from Temple University in 2001. He lives in Haddonfield. In commenting on the appointment, Board of Education president Steve Weinstein said, “We are very excited that we have found someone who will continue the strong leadership that this District expects. What made Dr. Perry such a strong candidate was his extensive experience and acknowledged success as an educational leader with a solid background in the classroom.” He continued, “But it was also clear to us that he understands what this business is all about. In interviews, he always brought the focus back to what would be best for the kids,” Weinstein said. “That was very important to us, because in the Haddonfield School District, it is the students who come first.” Saying he was “tremendously excited and honored by this appointment,” Dr. Perry said he eagerly anticipates meeting the greater Haddonfield community. “For me, in a way, I am coming back home,” he said. “I am very honored that the board has put their faith in me and I am looking forward very much to working with the board, parents, teachers, administrators, students, and community.” The entire board of education interviewed a number of current, experienced superintendents before selecting Dr. Perry. After completing the process, the decision to appoint Dr. Perry was unanimous. He replaces Dr. Alan Fegley, who is leaving Haddonfield to become superintendent of the Phoenixville School District in Pennsylvania. Since he must give notice to the Palmyra Board of Education, Dr. Perry is not expected to assume his Haddonfield responsibilities until around October 1. He will be in the district frequently during August and September, however, to meet parents, the PTA leadership, and the administrators and teachers at each Haddonfield school. The new superintendent’s employment contract runs through June 30, 2014. His annual salary will be $153,000, a figure that is below the new maximum for a district of Haddonfield’s size, as set recently by Governor Christie. July 30, 2011

 Do you cherish the charm and character that sets Haddonfield apart from other towns? Do you enjoy the historical significance of its buildings, neighborhoods, and streetscapes? Haddonfield is changing on a daily basis. With each tear down, another piece of history is lost forever. At the same time, green and open space is quickly disappearing. A group has been formed to monitor these developments, educate residents, and protect Haddonfield’s character. If you are concerned, join Preservation Haddonfield. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at 7:30pm at the Mabel Kay Senior Center. To learn more, go to or call 287-4665.
