Sale of historic Norwich post office not going anywhere, but post office may move to library


The Postal Service has been trying to sell the historic post office in downtown Norwich, Connecticut, but it's been having trouble finding a buyer.  Nonetheless, there will be a meeting today to discuss the relocation, a meeting required by law.
