A membrane switch is nothing more than a regular switch.   (with a "moderate" ON resistance)
So you can read it like any other pushbutton.    i.e. connect common to GND,  the switch to a pin.   use pinMode(button, INPUT_PULLUP);

If you have a matrix keypad,   you would use exactly the same code as a 4x4 keypad.

You do not need any external electronics.

If you are very tight for pins,   you can use an Analog input pin to read 3 or 4 pins on a resistance ladder.    But it is a bit unreliable with dirty membrane.
