Stone Mountain, GA — Bookstore and wine bar The Vibrary is slated to open at 970 Main Street on July 16.

The unique new business slated for Stone Mountain Village will feature book signings, book clubs and wine tastings.

“We’ve been working hard to get out the kinks and make sure the VIBE is exceptional for you when you visit us,” Vibrary announced. “Now we must CELEBRATE! Come out and join us! Remember, the Ann Key Memorial Foundation gives scholarships to graduating public high school seniors in Dekalb County, and it receives 10% of the proceeds!”

The grand opening will be on Friday, July 16, from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The owner is Candace Walker.

“I want it to be a place that’s very inclusive, where we only have good vibes and people can come and relax and have a book and look at it or come with some friends,” Walker told The Tucker Observer.

Perhaps more unique than The Vibrary’s concept is its owner’s background. Walker is a forensic scientist who worked in the GBI crime lab before serving two stints in Afghanistan as an investigator for the Army. She became the crime lab director for the Atlanta Police Department in 2016, with the AJC calling her the lab’s ‘new star scientist.

Walker will pull double duty by keeping her APD job and running The Vibrary.
