Thank you for your question.  Yes, children's cards can accrue fines.  If an adult or young adult item is checked out on a child's card they will accrue fines at $.25 per day starting the first day the item is overdue.  If it is a children's item on a child's card, there is a 60-day grace period.  However, after the 60-days the item will accrue the $5.
