The package names will start with libglib.  You probably want libglib2.0-dev

bates at bates1-home:~$ apt-cache search libglib2
libglib2-ruby - Glib 2 bindings for the Ruby language
libglib2.0-0 - The GLib library of C routines
libglib2.0-data - Common files for GLib library
libglib2.0-dbg - The GLib libraries and debugging symbols
libglib2.0-dev - Development files for the GLib library
libglib2.0-doc - Documentation files for the GLib library

You could also go to the Debian package search page 
http://packages.debian.org/ and search for the package that contains a 
file with a name that includes glib.h
