    It's not an "installed library". The .apk is an installation file, not the app. (You can delete any .apk files on your phone - the apps will remain installed.) If it installed as a system app, you have to look in System apps. But if it's malware, it probably installed without leaving any name, so you have to root, then use Linux (the OS Android runs in - an app like Terminal Emulator for Android will give you access to it) to find the app and remove all files associated with it.

    Depending on the phone, it might be easier to just reflash the firmware (after backing up any data you don't already have backed up).
