Question: Why won't my car start?

I have a 1994 Toyota Camry. The battery is almost three years old, but is a really good quality one. Today it would not start. The lights, clock, etc. turned on, but no engine sounds or clicking. We tried to jump it and nothing happened. Do you think it might be the starter or the battery? Do you recommend trying anything before having it towed to shop? Thanks.
