I am looking for an API or library to obtain a mirror of a link.

E.g., if I give http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/vac.htm as input, it should return something like https://web.archive.org/web/20170508020506/http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/vac.htm or http://archive.is/ZEqSG.

Any operating system, price, programming language or license is fine. I have a preference for Microsoft Windows and python if that's a possibility.

Why not use the internet archive api?

you have to send the send the request http://archive.org/wayback/available?url=example.com, and then check the json reply for data.archived_snapshots.closest.url
