Linking a .lib file

Howdy.  I use the cygwin-b20 g++ compiler with Emacs, and I need to link in 
a .lib file.  When I try doing the compilation\linking command

g++ -g FILE_1.cpp FILE_2.lib -o  -lm

I get an error message stating that .lib extensions are not recognized.  Is 
there a way to link .lib files, or to convert them to a recognizable form?
