There's a wiki page here that lists libraries that lend ebooks:

The following (at least) are available to any residents of CA, and they seem to have the largest collections as well (probably due to state funding):

Los Angeles County
Los Angeles (City)
Pasadena
Sacramento
San Francisco
San Jose
Northern CA Digital Library (Bay Area) - some of these accept CA residency

At least for SFPL, you can fill out an application online, but you have to visit in person to verify CA residency and get a card. And yes, where Yolo County has 292 fiction titles, SF has 3320 (but a good 20-30% of those are in Chinese, which unfortunately I cannot read).

I hope to add the San Jose to my choices next time I'm there, if not NCDL.
