Help:

  • When creating a BookPoints account, you only need to create one account for the whole family.
    • Create your family account and then add each adult and/or child reader in your family.
  • If your child’s school is not available, you may type other or none.
  • If you prefer a printable log, feel free to print this log for your child to fill out. Once full, simply log into the BookPoints site and officially log their reading.
  • Create a shortcut on your home screen by going to the share icon or options button in your browser app.
  • When logging minutes, you can track the week and do it all at once, or individually if you want to be more specific (i.e. bedtime storytime - 180 minutes)
  • You DO NOT have to put in book details---just minutes will do unless you want to track.
  • Collect badges. The more you read the more you get!
  • We will pull prizes every Friday. So be sure to listen to your phone for a message or check your email!
