kerens library fundraiser
3rd Saturday in October-annually

Each autumn the cotton crop was gathered and culminated months of work and worry for area farmers and their employees. Until recently, the cotton crop was the main source of income for Kerens folks. Fall meant cotton picking time; the three gins were running, people had a job, and they had money in their pockets. After a week of hard hot work, Saturday was the day to come to town, see your friends, sample some special treats, and have some fun.
