Description Stereograph of Chancellor Green Library, Princeton University.

Chancellor Green Library was dedicated in 1873. William A. Potter designed the building as the University's first freestanding library. It was funded by John C. Green and named after his brother, Henry W. Green (Princeton University class of 1820, Chancellor of New Jersey).

In 1897, the University needed more space for its library collections and built Pyne Library, connected to Chancellor Green Library. Since the construction of Firestone Library, Chancellor Green has served as part of the student center.
