Strictly speaking that does not compute: if the library version in use is vulnerable then you would *want* an upgrade to affect your application, right?

If you mean that you do not want to suffer application downtime, and the service does not support reloading libraries on say kill -HUP, then generally speaking you could duplicate whatever the service consists of so you can run a second instance, upgrade the library, redirect traffic and start the second instance, restart the original instance and remove the traffic redirect, then kill the second instance.

The way you run your second instance depends on your resources. If you managed to configure and run loadbalancing/failover then you would already know what to do. If you run all services on one machine you could run the second instance on a different port and redirect traffic using iptables rules.
* With respect to application downtime: session replication is not taken into account here: please consult your product documents.
