 for lib
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  lib
  
      Library.  In Unix, the directories /lib
     and /usr/lib traditionally contain files with filename
     extension ".lib" that are special archives containing
     modules of standard object code.  In modern Unixes the same
     directories contain ".so" (shared object) files, which are
     similar except that the object code they contain is designed
     to be loaded once and shared by all application code that
     needs it, thus saving memory.
