Oh, very bad question.
Because there is shining through that you want to go to damage your system.
You can update this library only with installing a newer distribution or you are going to compile a newer library and linux system on an other partition or drive.
How to compile a new Linux system is described by Linux From Scratch LFS,

Your libstdc (++) is located in /lib and the link is pointing to the system version.
What is included in that library is described by GNU's glibc package.

Is this just idle curiosity, or is there some underlying reason for this question? IOW, have you had an error, such as "unable to find libstdc++5" or something like that from software you've installed?

Post # 2 @bastl : libstdc++ has nothing to do with glibc.

'libstdc++' is part of the compiler collection, and the
c++ , g++ compiler depends on libstdc++.
And programs compiled with g++ depends on libstdc++.

Without knowing which Linux you are using, and which version
of libstdc++ you are asking about, I guess nobody can answer.
