Scorpius Malfoy solves the final riddle and he, Albus and Delphi take the Experimental Time-Turner

"This is all wrong. Albus? Can you hear me? All this for a frigging Time-Turner."
-- Scorpius Malfoy (CC1.19)

With only Scorpius Malfoy left outside the Weaponised Library, he works under pressure to solve the third and final riddle. This releases Delphi and Albus Potter from inside the bookshelves and reveals the Experimental Time-Turner hidden inside a book (CC1.19).

Timeline Notes

This is the day after Albus and Scorpius escape from the Hogwarts Express and visit the St Oswald's Home - so during 2 September 2020.

Commentary

Notes

Scorpius Malfoy knows about libraries and recognises the banned books contained in Hermione Granger's "Weaponised Library". He is very surprised when it then attacks them: "I opened a book. Something which has - in all my years on this planet - never been a particularly dangerous activity" (CC1.19).
