See if the library requires text relocations:
readelf -d <your library> |grep TEXTREL 

If so, try to fix that. I'm not sure how - maybe compile with -fPIC?

If it can't be fixed, it can be marked texrel_shlib_t to make it work,
but the user would have to enable the allow_execmod boolean. I'm not
sure if targeted policy has it enabled by default.
