FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need 1 account per household or 1 per reader?
You only need to create 1 account per household. You will be able to add multiple readers to the account. Each reader will be able to select the program of their choice!

How do I add a reader?
Follow these instructions if you are having trouble entering a reader: https://hopkintonlibrary.org/ckfinder/userfiles/files/Adding%20a%20Reader%20in%20BookPoints.pdf

What should kids be reading?
Participants are free to read anything. The schools have suggested summer reading lists (please see the ‘Reading Lists’ tab at the top of BookPoints). Remember, these are just suggestions. These lists can also be found lower down on this webpage.

Where do I find 'Secret Codes'?
Participants will earn secret codes when they attend library programs.

How do I claim a prize?
Visit the Children's Department to select a prize. Kids can earn up to 3 prizes!

I made a mistake entering a reader. How do I change a reader or delete a reader?
Locate the ‘HELP’ tab at the top of BookPoints. Fill out the ‘Ask a Question’ form. Your question will be sent to the librarians who will help fix any errors!
Also, while you cannot delete a reader, you can always add the reader again (into the correct program) and use that reader profile instead. The librarians can delete the duplicate (erroneous reader) later.

I entered my reading minutes twice. How do I remove them from my reading log/what should I do?
Unfortunately there isn't a great way to remove minutes once they are entered. The best way to handle this is to do additional reading equal to the number of extra minutes entered (just don't log the minutes again). No worries and we appreciate your honesty!
