try using:
#pragma comment(lib,"library.lib")

this works in Microsoft Visual C++ but it is standard C/C++

excert from msdn:
Places a library-search record in the object file. This comment type must be accompanied by a commentstring parameter containing the name (and possibly the path) of the library that you want the linker to search. Since the library name precedes the default library-search records in the object file, the linker searches for this library just as if you had named it on the command line. You can place multiple library-search records in the same source file; each record appears in the object file in the same order in which it is encountered in the source file.
