This Stack Exchange Q&A has various ways of setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH the top voted answer suggests this is the best way:

sudo -H gedit /etc/ld.so.conf.d/randomLibs.conf

inside the file you are supposed to write the complete path to the directory that contains all the libraries that you wish to add to the system, for example

/home/linux/myLocalLibs

remember to add only the path to the dir, not the full path for the file, all the libs inside that path will be automatically indexed.

Save and run sudo ldconfig to update the system with this libs.
