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)
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.
