You would write a small C program that used MathLink to communicate with 
Mathematica, and also called into your C++ library. This is a quite 
normal thing to do.

Since you are not a Mathematica user, it may be worth mentioning that it 
is even easier to communicate from Mathematica to Java - which is, of 
course, also object oriented. In simple cases this can be done without 
writing any Java code, so if your library has a Java version, that might 
be the one to use.
