Introducing Mom Central

Come and explore our lending library and resource center, run by expat moms for expat moms!

Our vision is to be a permanent physical environment where moms can hangout, inspire one another, create friendship, and at the same time, provide a fun & educational place for their children.

Currently, with generous book donation from moms & Blue Fountain, Mom Central houses about 500+ imported books. Majority of the collection is non fiction women related books (health, parenting, beauty, art & craft, etc) and children books, with small section of fiction, foreign magazines, and foreign language books.

Mom Central will also host weekly storytelling session, weekly play dates, and some classes (kids & adults) for fund raising.

The library was initiated by Venny Haryanti (who runs Tresor Bebe & Mommy Mode), and started by a team of excellent & committed volunteer expat moms who share the same vision.

We hope you can join us for our soft opening on June 2, 10am – 1pm. We will have a storytelling session at 10:30 am. Coffee & refreshment will be provided.

Our address is 327 Wuding Lu, Suite 2105, in the Jing’An District.The nearest cross street is ChangHua Lu. For now, Mom Central is sharing space sponsored by Tresor Bebe, but hopefully we will move to a bigger place of our own next year!

The opening event is free. For the lending library, there is a membership fee of RMB 50 for summer (June, July & August) Members can take home the books 2 books at a time for a period of 2 weeks. There is a one-time refundable deposit of RMB 100.
