I've looked up every city, town, village, and borough I've ever heard of, and then some. Haven't found it yet. Will keep looking, though. Alas.

Lots of little towns in Colorado.
What was that town in Kauai up by the north shore...?

South Florida. Family is the reason I live in the Atlanta metro. I'm happy with where I live but if there were no strings attack I would be in South Florida deep sea fishing everyday.

Minneapolis.

I'm still in college and my partner is starting a professional career in law enforcement so he won't be able to relocate until he retires in 5 years.

You can find places like that in New England or the Upper Midwest. (Maybe even Ontario, Canada) Just gotta look. And realise not everywhere will be 100%

I am not trying to sound like a snob but I can afford to live anywhere. Ideally I would like to be in San Diego but most of my family lives in Florida, Georgia and Ohio so I try to stay closer to them so I can be a part of their lives. I would love to move out to San Diego but Miami Beach is a nice place to live but a bit too hot and humid for me at times.

I'm not there because I wouldn't be able to handle the brutal winters; my family in Eastern PA would be too far away; and the cost of housing is quite expensive.
The winters are only brutal in the fact its colder; otherwise its sunnier and less slushy. I don't think its too far from eastern Pennsylvania, but I live in TX and all my fam is in Florida and I plan to move to the Twin Cities myself haha. A day's drive is nothing to me.

Madison, WI seems to have all you ask (the library would be on the UW campus)

Oh, and it's the state capital, not just a college town, so it's not all college kids.
