If this isn't starting and rapping on the starter didn't work, this is the time that a shop CAN diagnose it because the problem is happening. In the meantime, you can get to the starter and make sure the connector at the starter looks good, wiggle it back and forth and verify it looks clean, no corroded.
In particular the spade to post connection as they go bad.
IF you are capable, you can check for power getting to the starter, if not, tow it to the shop for them to check it.
If you choose the latter, wait until the shop is open that your going to have it towed to and try it again before it goes. Hopefully it will still not be starting at that point.
