There're are a hell of a lot of libraries for C or C++ programming.
But you'll need libc6-dev and gcc at least.  Most libraries have a -dev
version with a static version and the headers (and possibly docs, though
they may be separate).  Instead of asking what libraries there are, ask
yourself what you want to do and then find out if there're libraries
that meet those needs.
